WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

Neither Barack Obama nor John McCain or their campaigns today brought up the race card today.

Yesteday, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis slammed Obama, citing the Democrat's remarks on Wednesday that :Republicans would try to scare voters by pointing out that he doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."

One John McCain supporter who has no problems speaking about the issue is Michael Steele, the former Lt. Governor of Maryland. Steele is a Republican, and also happens to be black.
