From FactCheck: "...the supposedly "radical" group was supported by a Republican governor and included on its board prominent local civic leaders, including one former Nixon administration official who has given $1,500 to McCain's campaign this year. Education Week says the group's work "reflected mainstream thinking" among school reformers. The group was the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, started by a $49 million grant from the Annenberg Foundation, which was established by the publisher Walter Annenberg, a prominent Republican whose widow, Leonore, is a contributor to the McCain campaign."

So they're both on this board with other Republicans who donate to McCain which also has the support of the Republican governor.

FactCheck also makes it clear: "...there's still no evidence of a deep or strong 'friendship' with Ayers, a former radical anti-war protester whose actions in the 1960s and '70s Obama has called 'detestable' and 'despicable.'"

If you want to draw attention to Obama's youth and short history of experience in government, which is a fact, that's a valid arguement and based on that I can understand you saying you don't have confidence in him to be commander in chief, but basing it on below the belt political attacks a la Atwater-Rove is not credible ...I believe you can do better than that.
