"I have to tell you. Sen. Obama is a decent person and a person you don't have to be scared of as president of the United States," McCain said as the crowd booed and shouted "Come on, John!" "If I didn't think I'd be a heck of a lot better, I wouldn't be running for President of the United States." If it's not the Times editorial board jeering him, it's his own crowd.
