The good thing is we got to see how Obama will react to these challenges over his experience.
Narrator: “It’s the toughest job in the world. You need to be ready for anything, especially now with two wars, oil prices skyrocketing and an economy in crisis. Harry Truman said it best: ‘If you can’t stand the heat. get out of the kitchen.’ Who do you think has what it takes?”
Hillary Clinton: “I’m Hillary Clinton, and I approved this message.”

The immediate reply was via an Obama ad:
Narrator: “Who has what it takes to really bring change, to finally take on the special interests, not take their money? Who made the right judgment about opposing the war and had the courage and character to speak honestly about it? And who, in times of challenge, will unite us, not use fear and calculation to divide us?”Watch the video:
Barack Obama: “We are one people. All of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes. All of us defending the United States of America. I’m Barack Obama, and I approved this message.”
While I am not surprised to see these sorts of fear tactics, I didn't expect the Demos to be using them against each other.
