It's becoming clear that the current strategy on the the Left is to convince voters and John McCain that Obama has the election wrapped up.  The want McCain to just go away so Obama can carry the election with mandate-like electoral vote totals and usher in the age of Obama.   Threatening McCain's legacy is their current line of attack.

From Politico:

Sen. Joe Biden said Monday that the tenor of the presidential campaign has gone “over the edge” and that if John McCain continues to push some lines of attack against Barack Obama he may regret it “for the rest of his life.”
...

The Democratic senator added that if McCain attacks Obama’s associations with 1960’s radical William Ayers or Rev. Jeremiah Wright during Wednesday’s debate he “will regret for the rest of his life having an incredible career getting cast aside.”
