Why McCain Shouldn’t Praise Obama

John Pitney explains that it will inevitably seem paternalistic and racist. A funny article that makes a serious point. Mac shouldn’t be so afraid of seeming racist that he doesn’t treat Barack as his opponent.

It's not paternalistic or racist for McCain to praise Obama, but to voters who have been fed a steady diet of PC for decades, it may seem that way. More important is that praise for Obama from his opponent, or from any Republicans, encourages uncertain voters to think he's OK as president. Which he most certainly isn't.
