Two Candidate Messages That Say It All

Here's Senator John McCain (R-AZ) last night on Senator Barack Obama's (D-IL) nomination:

Sen. 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.

Here's the Obama campaign on McCain's pick of Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) as his Vice-President:

Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain's commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush's failed economic policies -- that's not the change we need, it's just more of the same.

I think this more than anything else tells you about the type of people in the two campaigns.

One's an example in class and courtesy. The other...well, the word I'm thinking of rhymes with "class" anyway.

Oddly enough, the classy one came first and set the example for the other campaign to follow. Obviously, they elected not to do so.
