Conflict of Interest
- Recently the focus of the election has shifted to John McCain's "dirty politics" and his inability to tell the truth. Many have begun criticizing him for this (although still not nearly enough), but they're overlooking his big problem: if McCain starts telling the truth, he will lose.
There is no way to sugar-coat that. John McCain cannot win this election without deceiving the American people into believing his false accusations against Barack Obama. At the beginning of this race, both candidates promised clean campaigns that focused on the issues. Obama has held his promise; McCain hasn't. Obama has said that McCain would rather lose his integrity than lose this election, and he is absolutely right. John McCain has gone from a man of high integrity, or at least higher than the average politician, to being a sleazy liar who thinks America is dumb enough to believe him.
