44. I would tell him he's in VERY dangerous territory
His current campaign tactics are pouring gasoline on the fire of hatred that burns in his craziest far rightwing supporters. The anger being displayed is frightening and potentially explosive.

If this country has any importance to him over and above his ego - let alone "country first" - he needs to face the fact that some of his supporters are not having a rational reaction to the prospect of the historic election of our first African American President.

He needs to dial down the rhetoric and loudly condemn the ugliness he has thus far seemed to enjoy and encourage. Let there be no misunderstanding: If he does not and one of them crosses the line to violence, it will not only be a terrible tragedy for America - a fair share of the responsibility for that tragedy will sit directly on McCain's shoulders.
