Proximty to Russia equals Foreign Policy Street Cred
Okay, it was one thing when the one guy on Fox News said this exact same line, but now Cindy McCain repeats it? While talking to my friend (and yours probably) Wulf, he made a good point, "Obama has some then also. Illinois is close to Canada."
And continuing that chain of thought - Bush lived in Texas, near Mexico (which actually has attacked the US several times thru our history) and we see what kind of super policy experience and judgment he's had. :P
