Why Did McCain Not Use the Smear Card Tonight?

Sorry, Bill Kristol. McCain did not use the smear card tonight in the debate. Doggone, I know you are very disappointed, but who really cares about that. Just a short and from-the-gut reaction to this aspect of tonight’s debate. After all the muckrakinguncomfortably close to inflammatory incitementby his pit-bull running mate, I was amazed that McCain did not get into the gutter tonight, even though he had plenty of opportunity, regardless of the debate format. I am sure the pundits will have many more in-depth explanations and rationalizations. Perhaps McCain and his campaign started to see and feel the blow-back that was coming. Perhaps McCain had a sincere change of heart and decided to live by his own campaign promises.
