Sen. Obama Weighs In on Terrorism Policy

Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama laid out his vision for fighting terrorism Wednesday, saying he was prepared to send troops into Pakistan if the threat warranted.

The tough talk comes on the heels of a spat with Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton over whether and when a president should meet with dictators.

A first-term senator from Illinois, Obama is trying to convince voters that he has the experience and gravitas to be commander in chief.
