Obama: We Will Not Be Governed by Fear

Obama just showed that he is learning when it comes to debates.

Asked whether he would pledge to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons, Obama used it as a launching pad to offer a broad indictment of the Bush Administration.

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton
Sen. Barack Obama has pledged to more aggressively confront Sen. Hillary Clinton.

"We have been governed by fear for the last six years," Obama said. "It is very important for us to draw a clear line -- we will not be governed by fear."

It was a nice moment for Obama especially because both Clinton and Edwards, whose answers had preceded his own, simply said they would do everything in their power to keep Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

These debates are about creating opportunities and taking advantage of them. Obama just did it.
