Mark McKinnon Will Quit McCain RatherThan Run Against Obama

Earlier today, the Swamp noted that Mark McKinnon, a senior campaign adviser to both President Bush and Sen. John McCain of Arizona, had said some time ago that he could not serve McCain if Sen. Barack Obama became the Democratic presidential nominee.

And now this evening, the Republican consultant is reaffirming his stance that he will have to step out of his advisor’s role for the campaign if Obama wins the Democratic nomination. He explained his aversion to campaigning against Obama in an interview aired by National Public Radio, where Michele Norris interviewed him for All Things Considered:

“I met Barack Obama, I read his book, I like him a great deal,” McKinnon said. “I disagree with him on very fundamental issues. But I think, as I said, I think it would a great race for the country, and I would simply be uncomfortable being in a campaign that would be inevitably attacking Barack Obama. I think it would be uncomfortable for me, and I think it would be bad for the McCain campaign.” Read on…

Seems Mr. McKinnon has more conscious than to be caught up in the usual GOP slime/slash/kill machine if it's aimed at Obama. He knows what's coming. So do we. We had better be prepared to fight back, as the people.
