Reportedly, McCain has already created an ad designed to be released after Obama's acceptance speech tonight. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt, and assume sincerity (while remembering that there are always personal motives). Still, I've never heard of anything like it, and wanted to say straight out that it is the kind of political discourse I pray for.
JOHN MCCAIN: Senator Obama, this is truly a good day for America.
Too often the achievements of our opponents go unnoticed. So I wanted to stop and say, congratulations.
How perfect that your nomination would come on this historic day. Tomorrow, we'll be back at it. But tonight Senator, job well done.
I'm John McCain and I approved this message.
