Barack Obama the Adult and John McCain the School Boy

David Nather at CQ Politics notes that Obama and McCain were together on the Senate floor yesterday for the first time since the two men received the presidential nominations of their respective parties. Nather observes that each stood on his own side of the aisle chatting with colleagues, when Obama approached McCain to greet him. Writes Nather:
He walked over to where McCain was chatting with Republican Sen. Mel Martinez of Florida and Independent Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut. And he stretched out his arm and offered his hand to McCain.

McCain shook it, but with a “go away” look that no one could miss. He tried his best not to even look at Obama.

Finally, with a tight smile, McCain managed a greeting: “Good to see you.”
One of the candidates is a grown up, and one of them is not. The American people have taken the measures of the two men, and they will render their verdict on November 4.
