McCain national security adviser Randy Scheunemann:

"Senator Obama is a prefect manifestation of a September 10th mindset."



Seems like the McCain campaign has been waiting for Sen. Obama to discuss the intersection of terrorism and law enforcement; they were well-prepared to pounce on it as a perfect manifestation of what they believe is Obama's inexperience. So far, Obama hasn't responded, but I get the sense from his campaign that they're eager to have this debate but just not today, when they're rather focus on McCain's newfound appreciation for drilling for oil and natural gas off the coasts.

The Obama campaign is sending around this clip from McCain on 5/5, where he says he'd be "glad" to look at a winfdall profit tax, which certainly jibes with strong language he's going to use tonight.
