Age Card: Obama Hails McCain's 'Half-Century' of Service

Want to know how Barack Obama would intend to run against John McCain? Consider this line from Obama's speech to the Jefferson-Jackson dinner this evening in Virginia:
This week, this week, we found out that the presumptive nominee of the Republican party will be Senator John McCain [scattered boos in the audience.] Now, I believe John McCain is a good man and a genuine American hero. And we honor his half-century of service to this nation.

Subtle, Barack, subtle. Look for Obama to try to help McCain up onto the debating platform and pull out his chair.

Note: Hot Air saw this line of attack coming.
