If there's one thing the hot headed Senator from Arizona won't let stand, it's being called (and proven to be) a coward. McCain can't let the Ayers issue go because his ego and temper won't allow him. If I were advising him, I would tell him to stay clear of Ayers. But as someone who wants to see his campaign go down in flames for the good of the country, I think he should go full steam ahead -- the polls show this is a losing issue for him and playing the Ayers card at the third and final debate could seal the deal for Obama:

John McCain said Tuesday that Barack Obama is “probably ensured” that his association with 1960s radical William Ayers will come up in Wednesday’s debate.

“I was astonished to hear him say that he was surprised that I didn’t have the guts” to bring up Ayers, McCain said on KMOX, a St. Louis radio station.

“I think he is probably ensured that it will come up this time.”

As for Obama? Cool as the other side of the pillow:

“I am surprised that, you know, we've been seeing some pretty over-the-top attacks coming out of the McCain campaign over the last several days, that he wasn't willing to say it to my face,” Obama said. “But I guess we've got one last debate. So presumably, if he ends up feeling that he needs to, he will raise it during the debate.” Read on...
