Giving credit where due, I just saw a clip on CNN where John McCain sought to push back against his supporters’ calling Obama a terrorist, “Arab’ and related personal attacks of being ‘scary’ and/or unAmerican. It was just a small clip, so not sure of the entire context, but he was getting a good bit of a negative reaction by simply calling Obama a decent person, and asking that everyone be ‘respectful’ in the rest of the campaign.
So, kudos to John McCain, who may be able to lose with honor after all.
Update: I should add that he was booed by his many in his audience when he did this. But he also got some applause when he said the campaign should be about issues.
He may have just divided the conservative movement even further than it was already.
