Obama Couldn't Recall Name on His Bracelet in Debate

One interesting snippet from the debate last night was Sen. Barack Obama's "I've a bracelet too!" moment. This was widely praised by Democrats after the debate as showing that he cared for the troops in Iraq.

The problem was that Obama really stumbled on remembering the soldier's name. Normally it wouldn't be a big deal, but his stumbling was about the same as Gov. Sarah Palin's reaction to Charlie Gibson's question on the Bush Doctrine, which liberals loudly pronounced as her greatest mistake in that interview.

In case he has to remember who it is, it's Sgt. Ryan David Jopek, 20, who was killed in Iraq by a roadside bomb on Aug. 2, 2006.
