Obama Bin Respectful

The difference in the level of discourse between the two campaigns is staggering. Images like the one above and choruses of hateful rhetoric against Obama continue to plague McCain rallies while the Republican candidate for President offers a frail, belated denunciation. Obama, on the other hand, enjoying his position in the polls, continues to treat McCain with respect. In Ohio today: 

Mr. Obama reprimanded his audience when people started jeering at the mention of Mr. McCain’s name, declaring: “We don’t need that. We just need to vote.”

Mr. Obama praised Mr. McCain’s proposal to waive the rules that penalize retiree withdrawals from 401(k)’s, saying: “I want to give credit where credit is due.”

Of course, Obama can be more respectful because he maintains large leads in most polls, even in some traditionally red states like North Carolina, Indiana, and North Dakota. But I genuinely believe that Obama would not stoop as low as the McCain campaign has even if he were behind at this point. Let’s hope that I don’t get a chance to be proven right.
