During the presidential campaign season, it seems like almost everything could have an impact on the election. While leaders assess the long-term impact of the conflict in Georgia, pundits want to know right now how the complex event will impact the election in November. So far, the media has chalked up Russia's aggression as an advantage for John McCain.
McCain has stressed his perceived edge in foreign policy experience, using stronger language against Russia than President Bush, and maintaining that the US must reevaluate relations with Russia. While Obama fully condemned Russia's actions, he also called for restraint from both Russia and Georgia.
As shown in the video above, the media thinks McCain's stiff approach to diplomacy will come out looking better thanks to the conflict in Georgia. Do you agree?
