Not In the Same League

McCain protests NBC coverage

... the campaign is objecting to a statement by NBC's Andrea Mitchell on "Meet the Press" questioning whether McCain might have gotten a heads-up on some of the questions that were asked of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), who was the first candidate to be interviewed Saturday night by Pastor Rick Warren at a presidential forum on faith.

Mitchell reported that some "Obama people" were suggesting "that McCain may not have been in the cone of silence and may have had some ability to overhear what the questions were to Obama. He seemed so well prepared."

McCain seemed well prepared because he was well prepared. He knows where he stands on the issues and he's not afraid to state them.

Obama, on the other hand, is trying to walk a tightrope, he doesn't want to say the wrong thing, he wants his answers to please everyone. He does well when his team can put together what he's supposed to say and he can regurgitate it.
