Not only does John McCain have an anger management problem and embarrassing foot-in-mouth, but according to Mark Benjamin at Salon.com, many in command positions in the military are frightened of a McCain presidency because at times they have seen that he "loses his mind."
On MSNBC's Keith Olbermann:
Benjamin originally was doing a piece on the national security creds of Hillary and Obama. At a later time he decided to add McCain to the article, assuming that all the military was behind him. But what he found was that many top generals were frightened of a McCain presidency, questioned his mental stability in a crisis and didn't want him to be the one to press the button.
This is a great opening for the Obama campaign in the general election to undercut McCain's experience with something that Obama has been pushing all along: judgment and character. Compared to the infighting and volatility of the Clinton campaign and this news, Obama comes across as more clear-headed and I daresay, more Presidential. I'm feeling more hopeful already about the general election.
