Perhaps one of the most interesting moments in Sen. John McCain’s visit to Fresno State was his response to CNN political producer and Cincinnati Reds fan Peter Hamby’s question in the press conference regarding the comments of his senior campaign adviser Charlie Black, who recently suggested to Fortune magazine that a terrorist attack on U.S. soil would be a "big advantage" to McCain.

“I cannot imagine why he would say it,” McCain told Hamby. “It’s not true. I’ve worked tirelessly since 9/11 to prevent another attack on the United States of America. My record is very clear.”

Charlie Black has now apologized for his comments. According to a press pool report, outside a McCain fundraiser in Fresno, Black read the from handwritten notes saying, "I deeply regret the comments—they were inappropriate. I recognize that John McCain has devoted his entire adult life to protecting his country and placing its security before every other consideration."
