With the CEO of Google campainging for him, Colin Powell endorsing him and Warren Buffet advising him, Barack Obama does not look like your typical terrorist-socialist. It is hard to imagine that this continual drum beat character assisination will serve McCain well. It seems to me that he is trading credibility for whatever is to be gained by demagoguery. That seems like a poor bargain as with McCain’s experience and the current crisis of confidence in the president. the loss of credibility would be a critical loss for McCain.
