BEDFORD, N.H. -The voters who were gathered to question Barack Obama had their hands thrust in the air hoping to be called on. Instead, the Democratic presidential candidate decided to wrap things up by addressing the unmentioned elephant in the room.
"This last question I will prompt myself, and that's, 'Why you instead of Hillary?'" Obama said during a supporter's house party this week. "That's in the back of minds of a lot of people."
"I think the people that I've talked to over the last several months have some concern about the experience of Senator Obama, but that has seemed to have been allayed by their reading about his life experience and their meeting him and hearing his thoughtful answers about any number of areas of expertise," Hanna said. "It's very characteristic of Barack Obama to come back and meet it head on and discuss it and give his response to any issue that he thinks may be of concern to voters."
