Obama should concede the experience issue

If Hillary and McCain are both going to attack Obama on the experience problem, he needs to just admit that they are correct. Here's how he should do it . . .
"It's true that my friend John McCain has decades and decades of life experience. No other president in history has lived as much history as John. I admire and respect that, and I know we're all curious to find out how much more history John will see."
"My good friend Hillary also has many decades of experience. You can tell how much she has lived just by looking at her face. In fact, her face looks renewed from her encounters with our health care system."
"We all know that everybody who looks at John, and especially Hillary, will see how very much experience they've had. But the key question is judgment. Do we want a president whose judgment is impaired because it's past nap time?"
He has to do something, because Hillary obviously is running away with this thing.
