McCain has finally pushed back at the anger he has incited on the campaign trail. He looks uncomfortable in these three moments as he explains to a rally that Obama is, in fact, a "decent" man and that there is nothing to fear in an Obama presidency. The crowd actually boos this line of talk.
This comes a week too late. He should've said it the moment someone yelled "terrorist" in response to McCain's question, "Who is the real Barack Obama?" McCain has no one to blame for the position he's in but himself. My guess is he will look Obama in the eye at the next debate and offer some kind of truce. But it's too late. It's too late to save his candidacy for president, and even more importantly, it's too late to save his legacy. McCain should, and will, spend the rest of his life feeling ashamed of the way he's acted over the last week. It trumps all else.
