Wait, I have a bracelet too!

During Friday’s debate, John McCain mentioned a bracelet he was given to wear in honor of a soldier who was killed in action, and then Barack Obama was sure to mention that he, too, wears a bracelet in honor of a fallen soldier.

While I recognize that the two Senators were making different points regarding these bracelets, it seemed a little bit much.  I believe that it was too much of an emotional, visceral appeal to voters.  I have to hope that the average American voter is better than that.
