I'm Sorry, Are You Talking About John McCain?

Obama: McCain Would Serve As "Loyal Opposition" In Obama Administration
Barack Obama looked ahead to a potential Obama administration and suggested John McCain would serve as the "loyal opposition, in the minority."

"It is important to have a strong opposition," he added, "keeping you on your toes" and "calling you out."

At the start of his answer Obama joked the questioner was "setting [him] up to get in trouble" possibly alluding to recent criticism from the McCain campaign that he is presumptuous.

"You know I don't know that there's that perception," Obama said earlier this morning. "It's not really clear exactly what it's based on. If I was presumptuous or taking this for granted, I wouldn't be working this hard this week. I'm beat."
Considering how disloyal McCain has proved himself to conservatism in the past (see this, this, this, and this) Obama might not have to worry about Senator F-U. After all, McCain thinks Nancy Pelosi is an effective and inspiring Speaker of the House, and the Algore is a respectable leader with laudable goals. I think it's more likely McCain would think President Obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread, at least when it comes to protecting or passing Juan's pet legistlation. That's whole-wheat bread of course, not white. Sliced with a two-edged (a.k.a. bi-partisan) knife.
