White House race stays nice and polite -- for now
By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent | July 21, 2007
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The 2008 White House race has groundbreaking candidates, record-shattering spending and crowded debates, but so far it lacks a more common feature of recent campaigns -- negative and sometimes personal attacks.
It's still early, though.
The sprawling fields of contenders in both parties have kept a largely civil tone through the early stages of a fast-starting White House race, mostly avoiding direct confrontations and leaving the rare attacks to surrogates.
I wonder what Mr Whiteside considers rude?
