While Obama does Afghanistan, McCain does…baseball
The Republican presidential candidate, who is hoping to draw some attention away from his White House rival’s high profile trip to Europe and the Middle East, kicked off his week by taking in an afternoon of America’s favorite game.
Who needs to go to the Middle East to be hot?
Dressed in a cap and sunglasses on a boiling day, McCain joined his friend and former rival Rudy Giuliani at Yankee Stadium, signing baseballs for surprised fans and enjoying a hot dog.
Giuliani, a big supporter of the Arizona senator since failing in his own bid for their party’s nomination, slipped in a few digs at Obama, who spent the weekend in Afghanistan.
“I think the fact that Barack Obama is kind of making his first tour, in essence, of the world, gives you an indication that John McCain is the man with the experience,” the former New York City mayor told reporters at the stadium, according to a pool report.
“John doesn’t have to go for the first or second time to these places. He’s been going for 20, 30 years. He knows the world. He understands the world.”
