You see the General Election strategy right? If McCain faces Obama it's pretty apparent what his strategy will be. He will paint Obama as inexperienced and will chip away at Obama's brand of authenticity. He's already starting to do it by ripping him on public campaign financing. Read below from The Associated Press:
John McCain accused Democratic presidential rival Barack Obama of engaging in Washington doublespeak over accepting public financing for the general election as the likely GOP nominee tried to turn a money issue into a character test.
"We either keep our word or we don't keep our word. I intend to keep my word to the American people," McCain said Wednesday, pressing the line of criticism anew a day after delivering a blistering critique of the Illinois senator as both won their party primaries in Wisconsin.
"I think the American people would expect him to hold to that commitment, especially if we want to bring about change," McCain added.
In an opinion piece published in USA Today on Wednesday morning, Obama wrote that he wants to work toward a spending agreement with the Republican Party's nominee.
"I propose a meaningful agreement in good faith that results in real spending limits," Obama wrote. He laid out a series of conditions, including, perhaps, limiting how much money McCain can spend for the general election while the race for the Democratic nomination continues.
"That's Washington doublespeak," McCain responded. "I committed to public financing. He committed to public financing. It's not any more complicated than that. I'll keep my word, and I want him to keep his."
Obama's spokesman, Bill Burton, hit back: "John McCain is in no place to question anyone on pledges when he abandoned the latest campaign finance reform efforts in order to run for the Republican nomination and went back on his commitment to take public financing for the primary election this year."
By taking Obama to task on this, McCain may become Hillary's best friend. He's doing her a favor. Then again, everytime Hillary tears down Obama, she's helping McCain and the Republican Party in the General Election.
