Trying to look tough

Barack Obama is, that is...on the national security question:

"Barack Obama is answering a question he faced often on the campaign trail. Whom would he turn to for advice when making foreign policy decisions? The Democratic White House hopeful has scheduled the inaugural meeting Wednesday of what he’s calling his Senior Working Group on National Security. It includes former members of Congress and high-ranking Clinton administration officials."

He's trying to insulate himself against attacks for being weak on terrorism and the like.
Conservatives shouldn't let him get away with it--keep reminding folks about the naive nature of his pledges to meet with dictatorial enemies of the U.S., or about his suggestion that law-enforcement measures can be used to fight terrorism.
