Another Crush on Obama

Steve Benen has a great post on why Mark McKinnon, top advisor to John McCain's presidential campaign, might not make it through the campaign season. McKinnon has made news recently for saying that he couldn't run a campaign against Barack Obama because he couldn't run a negative campaign against the guy.

McCain's top campaign advisor? Obviously, as Benen points out, the odds of a McCain/Obama match-up seemed pretty long just a few months ago. But still, no scrambling to rewrite the original context? No denying the statement?

Apparently not. According to ABC News, McKinnon is sticking to his guns.

Truly, this election cycle gets weirder and weirder.
