McCain’s chief media advisor won’t fight Obama

That’s right, his chief media adviser likes Obama so much that he won’t campaign against him.

John McCain’s chief media adviser said Tuesday he is stepping down rather than campaign against Barack Obama.

Mark McKinnon said last year that he would leave McCain’s campaign after the primary season if the Arizona senator were to run against Obama.

In a 2007 interview with Cox News, McKinnon said he would vote for McCain, but “I just don’t want to work against an Obama candidacy.” He added that if Obama were to reach the White House, it “would send a great message to the country and the world.”

How refreshing, a man of his word!  If a movie were ever made about this year’s election, this would be one of the key moments to include.

Of course, he’s also a very pragmatic person.  Who wants to be in the limelight of a negative campaign that will probably lose anyway?  :P
