McCain: Senator Obama, Job Well Done

The much-trumpted McCain ad for tonight after Obama’s acceptance speech has been unveiled. It’s pure class all the way, and is forcing Obama’s camp to respond in kind.  I think it would have had more impact if it hadn’t been revealed until it actually airs so as to provide a stark contrast if Obama attacked McCain in his speech (which he was almost certain to do).  Revealing it ahead of time gives Obama a chance to edit his remarks. On the other hand, giving Obama that chance is pretty classy too.

Obama campaign manager David Plouffe — who did not know the content of the ad until we read him the script — just told us that the McCain ad is “a very nice gesture. We appreciate that. I wish more of his ads had that tone. But for tonight we appreciate it and will congratulate him next week on his nomination.”

Parting shot: Why in the world would more of McCain’s ads be compliments to Obama?
