It's very interesting that McCain wants to steal part of the limelight from the democratic nominee tonight. What suggestions do you have for Obama on the things he should say to McCain?

It seems like the McCain and the GOP are feeling left out and probably got a bit ticked off with Obama using the site of their convention for his victory speech tonite. They suddenly decided that McCain is also going to declare victory and launch his general election campaign tonight too. I'm not sure who's going first but I have a good guess it'll probably be granpy McSame. If this is the case, how should Obama deal with it?

My suggestion would be for Obama to use a bit of humor and some jujitsu on McCain. After giving his own speech, He should end by talking about McCain. Maybe begin with the usual spiel about his service blah blah blah.  He can then rip off on his ass by asking why McCain would want to declare victory on the same night as the Democratic Party. He might say something like McCain is feeling left out of the party, the Democratic Party but is welcomed since he was actually thinking of doing something like that a few years back.

I know McCain doesn't like to be reminded of this fact. I'm hoping that Obama's campaign have enough information on this they can use against him in the general election. This should come in handy in painting him as a flip flopper, no maverick, selling his soul to become the president or even better, losing his bearings.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
