I wonder if we had a “Bush looking at his watch” moment tonight.
After McCain talked about the bracelet from the mother of a slain soldier, Obama mentioned that he had one, too.
Unfortunately, it would seem that he didn’t have the name of the solder, Ryan David Jopek (sp?), quite on the tip of his tongue. He seems to have to read the name off the bracelet:
Obama: Jim, let me just make a point. I’ve got a bracelet, too.
(Looks up, adjusts wrist, looks down at wrist)
Obama: From sergeant… uh.. (adjusts wrist) uh, from the mother of sergeant Ryan David Jopek (phonetic). Given to me in Green Bay. And she asked me, can you please make sure another mother isn’t going through what I’m going through?
