CNN “Too Late” for McCain

“But even as he spends the campaign homestretch reminding wary Republicans of his miraculous comeback last year, history suggests it may simply be too late.” Source CNN

Campaigning has turned negative, as Republican ads have questioned Obama’s connection to the radical communist William Ayers. Wikipedia reports: “The senator [Obama] said in September 2008 that he hadn’t “seen him [Ayers] in a year-and-a-half.”"

Even though there has been very little recent contact between Obama and militant Weathermen member Ayers, the Republicans are still pushing this issue. Obama has a large circle of friends. It is misleading to focus on a single acquaintance from the past.
