Obama adviser: he is "not ready for the 3AM phone call"

A startling admission by Obama senior foreign policy adviser Susan Rice:

As Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton prepares for an afternoon news conference... her campaign has put up a YouTube moment that you can bet will be replayed over and over... In it, Susan Rice, a foreign policy adviser to Senator Barack Obama, discusses the foreign policy credentials of both Democrats against the tableau of Mrs. Clinton’s 3 a.m. phone call advertisement about who would be best prepared for an international crisis...

“Clinton hasn’t had to answer the phone at three o’clock in the morning and yet she attacked Barack Obama for not being ready,'’ Ms. Rice said. “They’re both not ready to have that 3 a.m. phone call.”

Well, I'm glad someone on Obama's staff is honest.
