Candidate Review - Assassination of Benazir Bhutto - Barack Obama

On Obama's campaign Blog (done by campaign workers, not Obama) there's a reference to a public event in Des Moines, where Obama commented on the assassination.
We mourn her loss...We stand for democracy and...we will be steadfast in our desire to end the kind of terrorist acts that have blighted not just Pakistan but other parts of the world.
He also released a public statement.
I am shocked and saddened by the death of Benazir Bhutto in this terrorist atrocity. She was a respected and resilient advocate for the democratic aspirations of the Pakistani people. We join with them in mourning her loss, and stand with them in their quest for democracy and against the terrorists who threaten the common security of the world.
Pretty much the right tone, although it doesn't address what this death really means.
