On the Campaign Trail with Ed Tibbetts: Bolton visits Iowans
Excerpted from this post at On the Campaign Trail with Ed Tibbetts
Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton visited the Iowa
delegation this morning to make a foreign policy case for John McCain
over Barack Obama. He said McCain proved more able when responding to
Russia's invasion of Georgia. "I think I can sum this up quite simply.
John McCain is ready to be president, Barack Obama is not," Bolton
said to a roomful of cheering Republicans. Bolton also praised
McCain's pick for vice president, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. He said she
is qualified to not only be on the ticket, but to step into the Oval
Office. Critics have raised questions about Palin's qualifications.
She was elected governor in 2006 and before that she was the mayor of
a town of 8,500 people.
