Since then, he has been back on track. At a town hall meeting in Nevada yesterday, a girl asked him if he would ever raise taxes. His answer was "No." Today, on the campaign trail in Colorado, McCain didn't exactly say "read my lips" but he came close . . . "I want to look you in the eye: I will not raise taxes or support a tax increase."
Can we trust McCain not to raise taxes? I doubt it but we don't have much choice. We can certainly trust Barack Obama to raise them.
