Obama Was Too Christian?

At least, that's what Bill Kristol is suggesting:
So while Obama talked of confronting evil, McCain spoke of defeating it. Obama took the view that evil is generally abroad in the world; McCain focused on radical Islam and 9/11. Obama claimed that all of us must be metaphorical “soldiers” against evil; McCain paid tribute to actual American soldiers. And McCain couldn’t resist saying again Saturday night that if he has to follow Osama bin Laden to the gates of hell1 to get him and bring him to justice, he’ll do so.
Now, I'll forgive Kristol for not being up on the teachings of Christ, but this was a quasi-religious forum. Which answers are more consistent with the Christian view of evil?
1. To the gates of Hell, yes, but not into Pakistan. Not that I would expect Kristol to remind us of the facts.
