Another Obama Softball Interview

If you think John McCain gets a free pass in the media, check out this local media interview with Barack Obama by the Willamette Week.

Questions ranged from “What’s the difference between you and Hillary Clinton on an Oregon-specific issue” to “What’s the nicest thing you can say about Sen. Gordon Smith.” The reporter also used his valuable time to ask Obama about this stance on medial marijuana. That's Oregon for you, I guess.

 And then there was this real hard-hitting question: “If you had a tattoo, what would it be and where would you put it?” Obama answers, “If a gun was put to my head?..Then I suppose I’d have to have Michelle’s name tattooed somewhere very discreet.”
