    Thisisn't a case of McCain agreeing with a criticism of Obama made by Clinton. This is Clinton supporting a criticism of Obama made by McCain. I understand the distinction is subtle, but, I think, it is important.

    That being said, I think the proper response for Obama would have been to defer a decision about accepting public financing until suchtime that he becomesthe nominee, out of respect for those voters who have not yet been heard. But, I understand the campaigns decision to take this relatively minor hit now and get it behind them.  

    Profanity is a crutch for the ignorant motherfucker.

        you know, Clinton has agreed to accept public funding right?

        No, she hasn't.  This is the most asanine and hypocritical attack line yet.

        •  Obama made a pledge and backed out of it. (0+ / 0-)

          You may think it's out of bounds to call him on it, but I don't think too many people will agree.
