It's 3 AM - do you know where your message team is?
I love these Dems - if there is an international crisis at 3 AM Hillary, tastefully turned out in a suit and matching necklace, will answer the bell. Oh, well, she was probably staying up working on ways to improve my life.
Obama's response we have only heard about ten thousand times - if the phone rings at 3 AM we can be sure that he won't invade Iraq in 2003. That puts him right in line with 90% of the Congressional Black Caucus, so we needn't spend time wondering he was a heroic iconoclast or simply took the safe and conventional course of an urban liberal back in 2002. Folks who are confident that conventional urban libs are always right should find this to be heartening.
As an historical footnote, maybe the phone won't even be answered until breakfast - Reagan was not awakened when the US splashed a couple of vexatious Libyan jets, but his reputation for toughness held up OK.
