Axelrod: Obama “Prepared” to Talk About Ayers at Debate


Top Obama strategist tells reporters en route to New York for the final debate that his candidate will answer questions on the former Weather Underground member if asked.

And/But: Even if the Ayers question does come up, Axelrod doesn’t think it will change much because McCain “is essentially on the wrong side of history…”

Also disputes characterization Obama was “goading” McCain to bring up character attacks by noting to ABC News last week that McCain didn’t make the remarks directly to his face.
