McCain responds: ‘I have confidence that Gwen Ifill will do a professional job.’

Today, Fox News’s Carl Cameron asked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) if he still supports having PBS’s Gwen Ifill moderate Thursday’s vice presidential debate, in light of the fact that she is writing a book called “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.” McCain said that he retains full confidence in her ability to be objective:

I think that Gwen Ifill is a professional and I think she will do a totally objective job, because she is a highly respected professional. Does this help that if she has written a book that’s favorable to Sen. Obama? Probably not. But I have confidence that Gwen Ifill will do a professional job.
