Giuliani, McCain Foreign Policy Adviser to talk Biden, Obama

by Jake Grovum

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and McCain-Palin Foreign Policy Adviser Randy Scheunemann will hold a conference call with reporters at 3 p.m. today. The two will discuss “Joe Biden’s admission that Barack Obama’s election will precipitate an international crisis,” according to a campaign news release. I’m not entirely certain what kind of admission the campaign is referring to or how Obama’s election will “precipitate an international crisis,” but Filed Under Politics will be on the line bringing the conference call to you. Update: A colleague here just passed me this story from CNN. Here’s what Biden said to spark this conference call: “Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy,” said Biden to a roomful of donors. “The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America.” “Remember I said it standing here, if you don’t remember anything else I said,” Biden continued. “Watch, we’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
