Interesting Video: 2004 Obama Says That 2008 Obama Would Not Have Enough Experience
Quote from the video when asked why he rules out running on a national level in 2008:
You know, I am a believer in knowing what you’re doing when you apply for a job…uh, and I think that if I were to seriously consider running on a national ticket, I would essentially have to start now before having served a day in the Senate. Now there are some people who might be comfortable doing that…uh, but I’m not one of those people.
There are also people who would not be comfortable with you doing that either, Barack. I’m one of them. It’s definitely too bad you changed your mind about your lack of experience being an issue. It’s even worse that you now pretend that you do have experience, desperately referencing your experience running (or rather letting your campaign manager run) your campaign as an important notch on your belt.
