The Ayers thing is a RWNJ smear campaign intended to impugn Obama's character. The fact that the McCain camp has centered their entire effort on this non-issue is a sad reflection of their desperation late in a failing campaign. It was always unlikely that any GOP candidate was going get the nod as POTUS this go around. Best to fight the good fight and lose with some dignity intact IMO.
And I agree, there is plenty to dislike about Obama from a policy perspective, and plenty of fine arguments to make in that arena. In regard to domestic issues and income tax, he is an absolute fright. But frankly, no bigger a fright than I find McCain in regard to international issues. It seems likely that Obama will get the nod. Let's hope that Congress reins in some of his more radical notions.
