From Obama -
"I am surprised that, you know, we've been seeing some pretty over-the-top attacks coming out of the McCain campaign over the last several days, that he wasn't willing to say it to my face. But I guess we've got one last debate. So presumably, if he ends up feeling that he needs to, he will raise it during the debate."
Does Obama actually, in his wildest dreams, imagine John McCain can be intimidated by some dope-smoking, socialist, machine guy from Chicago?
You think *this* guy is worried about saying something to your face?
Cut the shit.
