Gen. Tony McPeak of Oregon featured in new Obama ad

Barack Obama's new Iowa ad features Oregon's General Merrill A. (Tony) McPeak, and speaks directly to the judgement and experience brings to the race:

From a conference call with reporters:

"Many of you probably know I have a little combat experience," McPeak said on a call with reporters. "I watched a couple Commanders-In-Chiefs up close. I maybe can give a little expert testimony on judgment. …I’ve gotten to know Barack Obama very well in the last 6 to 8 months. He has precisely the kind of judgment we need.

“Lives are at stake, and that can’t be left to business as usual thinking.”
