So I get how usually showing your opponent agreeing with you and giving you kudos would be a good thing for your campaign. However, given the climate of the MPC, I feel that they're almost saying, "Look, this guy who you're all voting for really likes our environment plan."
I'm not articulating well what I mean. I guess it's that they've tried so hard to undermine Obama and have said so many times that he's not trustworthy, not ready, shady, not American, etc., that I;m having a hard time understanding why, all of a sudden, they think his opinion is important.
ETA: Duh, if I had just scrolled down I would have seen this commentary, which sums it up perfectly.
The thrust of the McCain campaign, especially for the past month, has
been that Barack Obama is evil and scary: a metrosexual cosmopolitan
celebrity who wants to molest your children while his terrorist friends
plot to kill you and his homeboy welfare chiselers from ACORN steal
elections so they can then steal your money. Now, four days before the
election, McCain shows the voters Obama "reaching across the aisle" to
praise his rival in his best calm, reasonable, thoughtful tone.
