Ben Smith at the Politico reports that Barack Obama pulled back on the campaign reins quickly today after his campaign sent out a surprisingly negative release on Palin as McCain’s VP choice…
Proving that Obama isn’t so eloquent without the aid of his script and teleprompter, the pool report actually includes all his stumbles:
“I think that, uh, you know, campaigns start getting these, uh, hair triggers and, uh, the statement that Joe and I put out reflects our sentiments,” he said, according to the pool report, apparently criticizing his staff for going overboard, as he did occasionally in the primary.
Note: Anybody else find the statement at the end by Obama’s running mate a bit creepy? A friend of the blog who sent it along said Biden has earned a nickname from some women on the Hill: “Creepy Joe.” Looks like the debates ought to be interesting, eh?
