That is where McCain loses the warm fuzzy connecting with the voter thing. Even with that innocuous comment, many will hang onto that as rude, dismissive, or even worse some will cry racism (I don't agree).

McCain is an old timer that does not respect black people, let alone one that is competing against him for the presidency. McCain DESPISES Obama since he never thought he would be fighting for the presidency with a black man. that's what it comes down to. Sad..but true.

McCain's not showing racism there, at least not overtly. He's just being an *****hole.

I don't think the "that one" comment was as harsh as pundits on CNN and the OP here are saying. McCain certainly was a bit snarky at times, however.

Especially when he refused to shake the extended hand of Barak Obama after the debate.

I don't think it was racism. McCain just seems to have a pattern of being disrespectful to those that he disagrees with, regardless of race or sex.
