Campaign Video of the Day -- October 8, 2007


Today's campaign video comes straight from Barack Obama's campaign. A lot of you might not remember the Cuban missile crisis, but for those of us old enough, the crisis was the first time we ever really considered the possibility of end of the world.

Officially Ted Sorensen was President John F. Kennedy's Special Counsel & Adviser. He is remembered as Kennedy's primary speechwriter. This is Obama's latest video. In it Sorensen focuses our attention on Obama's judgment. He reminds us that Kennedy might not have had much experience, but he had superb judgment. Ultimately, if experience doesn't inform judgment it is worse than worthless.
