McCain Flips on Wright

After chastising the North Carolina GOP for running anti-Obama ads featuring the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, McCain begun criticizing Wright during an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. He did so on the grounds that Obama said Wright's comment were a "legitimate political issue." McCain took Wright to task for equating U.S. Marines to Roman legionnaires who crucified Jesus. Well, better late than never. But it worries me that McCain didn't see fit to criticize Wright until Obama gave him permission to do so. Yet McCain criticizes his own party at the drop of a hat. I know that's old news to many conservatives. Be that as it may this is not a deal breaker for me. He's still light years ahead of Obama and Hillary. If McCain is right about the surge in Iraq and nothing else he will have accomplished something significant in the White House.
