McCain works to Marginalize Dobson

Last week, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson provided leadership for the evangelical community when he said this:
"Speaking as a private individual, I would not vote for John McCain under any circumstances," Dobson said on KCBI.

The 2002 McCain-Feingold campaign finance legislation stifled "Christian radio" and "kept us from telling the truth right before elections," Dobson contended. "He is not in favor of traditional marriage and I pray that we will not get stuck with him." (cite)
In response, McCain has attempted to marginalize the significance of Dr. Dobson's statements and the MSM is helping everywhere it can.
"I'm happy to say that I've established a dialogue with a number of other leaders," including the Rev. Jerry Falwell, "Purpose Driven Life" author Rick Warren and Dr. Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention. McCain has reached out to conservatives he once crossed.
Frankly, Dr. Dobson's vote of no-confidence was a death blow to the McCain campaign. How does McCain hope to garner the trust of evangelical conservatives without Dobson's support? Marginalize, marginalize, marginalize.
