AS THE HONEY TRAP SPRINGS:

Whites lift McCain to slim lead over Obama in poll (ALAN FRAM, 9/12/08, Associated Press)

Eighty percent say McCain, with nearly three decades in Congress, has the right experience to be president. Just 46 percent say Obama, now in his fourth year in the Senate, is experienced enough.

Fully 47 percent say Obama lacks the proper experience — an even worse reading than the 36 percent who had the same criticism about McCain running mate Sarah Palin, serving her second year as Alaska governor after being a small-town mayor.

"This is his fourth year in the Senate, and two of those four years he spent campaigning for president," said Arthur Koch, 63, an undecided voter from Wallington, N.J. "I'm not too comfortable with that."


Any idiot could have told the Obama camp they were playing into Maverick's hands by making a governor's experience an issue, but what can Brights learn from us?
