Barack Obama: Smart, Classy and Cool as a Cucumber… Presidential

Courtesy of the Jed Report:

“While I was on vacation, a heckler interrupted a Barack Obama speech and demanded that he recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Since I wasn’t tuned in, I don’t know how much play the moment got, but Barack was cool as a cucumber. Instead of a McCain-style freakout, he diffused the situation by acknowledging the heckler, and bringing him inside the tent by asking him to join with the audience in leading the pledge What could have been an explosive moment instead became ho-hum — as it should have been.

You can’t extrapolate too much from an incident like this, but at least for me it does reinforce the idea that Barack Obama’s temperament is better suited to the presidency than John McCain’s.”

Obama for President.
