Albright Agrees: Terrorists Will Test Obama

Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, one of the most prominent Hillary Clinton supporters now in support of Barack Obama, admits it is a “statement of fact” that the election of the Democratic senator from Illinois as president will result in him being tested by a generated international crisis by America’s enemies.

Responding to last weekend’s comments by Obama’s vice presidential running mate Joe Biden — who said Obama would be tested within the first six months of his administration — Albright told CNN’’s John Roberts, “It’s just a statement of fact. In my book [“Memo to the President Elect: How We Can Restore America’s Reputation and Leadership”], I talk about the fact that there are a lot of big issues out there, but also something unexpected. You always have to be prepared for that.”

Albright, an informal advisor to the Obama campaign and Secretary of State under former President Bill Clinton, has gone on record as saying Biden is one of the most respected figures in American foreign policy and should know about these matters.

“As Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee he has involved himself in every conceivable subject,” she told Bloomberg News. “I’ve testified in front of him many times and he is incredibly knowledgeable, very oriented to making a difference for America, and very well-known by foreign leaders.”
