    So, McCain has been reduced to high school pep rallys?

    "Barack Obama is such a class act, especially when compared with John McCain:

    The Politico web site has a piece today about what will happen to whichever candidate loses the election. According to this story, McCain hasn't said whether he'd return to the Senate if he loses his White House bid - and his campaign is bristling at the very suggestion. "McCain doesn"t plan on returning to the Senate," McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said Wednesday. "He plans on winning the election because he"s absolutely qualified to be president of the United States." Compare this with Barack Obama's conversation with ABC's Charles Gibson on Wednesday: "I"m a relatively young man. You know, they say there's no second acts in politics. But you know, I think there are enough exceptions out there that I think I could envision returning to the Senate and just doing some terrific work with the next President and the next Congress."

    That is precisely why Barack Obama WILL be the next President of the United States."

    Doesn't surprise me a bit. A couple months back, a friend of mine who's a repub went to a rally of his in st. louis and reported to me that his campaign people were handing out pre-made handmade-style signs that said things like "Hillary Supporters for McCain" and "Democrats for McCain."

    I don't think there is anything wrong with people having different views than i do, even if they consider themselves democrats, but it's just wrong to make stuff up like that. [and to think, i used to admire mccain. what has happened to him?]

    Ugh, poor McCain. He looked so uncomfortable there.

    That is standard practice in both parties, even if it does look really slimy.
