Obama Is Ready to Be Tested
Posted on Oct 23, 2008
The Democratic nominee embraced his running mate’s gaffe on Wednesday, saying that the next president, regardless of who wins, will be tested after the election.
Obama, stopping in newly competitive Virginia for two events, met with the advisers at a downtown Richmond hotel, then told reporters that Senator Joe Biden was right when he said Sunday that an enemy may seek to test the mettle of the new president.
“We have to be mindful that, as we pass the baton in this democracy, that others don’t take advantage of it,” Obama said. “That is true whether it’s myself or Senator [John] McCain.”
