    Default Obama accidentally praises McCain

    At least, I assume it was accidental, given the quick back tracking. Hilary has of course attacked him brutally over it.

    McCain fiddles while the Dems burn, lol.

    He's right. That's the difference between Obama and other politicians: Obama is being honest. On the other hand, Hillary is a dirty little bitch. She is a dirty politician and trying to use excuses like saying Obama would not stand up so well to Republican attacks in order to launch her own attacks.

    I have to commend the republicans for choosing McCain (even though I preferred Huckabee), a fairly reasonable candidate, rather than a mud-slinger like Romney. Now what will Dems do? An honest, good candidate like Obama, or a mud-slinger like Hillary? If Hillary pulls off an upset, I won't vote for her. I'm sorry, I'm sick of this mud-slinging game that these politicians play to get to the top. Hillary chose to do it in desperation, and I cannot respect that. Contini says Obama 2008!

    While I agree with what you are trying to say, why has Obama since backed off his statement? It's the game, he's playing the game.

    I'm a McCain guy, but I'm sure once the general election build up starts, he'll be right in there, too. Obama is trying to play the game by playing the age old "I don't play to traditional game" which every candidate tries to play, when in reality he is playing. For whatever reason, Obama has gotten a bit of the special treatment (he's different then the other politicians!) moreso then most candidates. Reality is starting to set in.

    I guess we're heading for another dirty, ugly, "Gotcha" politics session where everybody plays the "Here's why the other guy sucks" routine as opposed to "Here's why I am good".

    But Obama has avoided these tactics all the way along, even when he was far behind at the beginning. Obama, McCain, and Huckabee have played it fairly clean. The other guys have not. Even Edwards let me down with his mud-slinging. I'm sick of this type of politics. I refuse to support any people who make it a major part of their campaign.

    What better way is there than to peek over the fence, compliment your long term opponent as means of turning the heads of those that may be straddling republican and considering a moderate alternative.

    Could Obama be using the stomping ground as an opportunity to raise alertness for the summer / fall run? Voters really don't want to have to listen to the roar and rant of the Hillarbeast.

    She's toast and Obama smothers her with a little PA blackberry jam this week.
