Tony Lake courting FL for Obama
Former Clinton National Security Adviser Anthony Lake spent a good chunk of this week criss-crossing Florida, raising money for Barack Obama. Lake tells us it's no knock on Hillary, his old boss' wife, but Obama has him as excited as he was for Jack Kennedy in 1960 and Bill Clinton in 1992. He met Obama in 2002, and brushes off questions about Obama's lack of foreign policy experience.
"It's not experience you want, it's judgement. Obama's judgement on the Iraq (opposing the war from the start) was was perfect,'' said Lake, who campaigned for Obama in Tampa, Sarasota, Palm Beach, and Miami. "We need someone looking outward, somebody who I believe almost overnight can change perceptions about the United States and help unify us within, which is very important in foreign policy."
