Respectful Debate

McCain reluctant to personal criticism of Clinton

COLEBROOK, N.H. (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful John McCain on Saturday said he will not follow his rivals' lead in taking personal shots at Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton, and that voters seeking a candidate who will do that should look elsewhere. "I think people want a respectful debate and a respectful discussion. And if they don't, then obviously, I'm not the person to be their candidate," McCain told reporters in response to questions about criticism of Clinton by Republican rivals Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney.
I think that if McCain keeps this up he might move up a bit in the polls. What do you think about the pot shots that candidates take at each other? What does this do for your opinion of McCain?

  1. I actually think he might not move up in the polls because of this decision. I watched one of the debates on the Fox News channel and they gave the audience "dials" to measure how they were feeling about the candidate at the moment. (They were wanting to see how what was said affecting the audience as it was said.) Intriguing.

    Results? Every time a candidate bashed Clinton, their approval rate went up.

    I found that interesting.
