* McCain Plans Fiercer Strategy Against Obama

Michael Shear writes in the Washington Post (thanks to KARIN for the article) …

  • John McCain and his Republican allies are readying a newly aggressive assault on Barack Obama’s character, believing that to win in November they must shift the conversation back to questions about the Democrat’s judgment, honesty and personal associations.
  • McCain’s team has decided that its emphasis on the senator’s biography as a war hero, experienced lawmaker and straight-talking maverick is insufficient to close a growing gap with Obama.
  • Being so aggressive has risks for McCain if it angers swing voters
