If Wives Are Off Limits…

If wives are off limits in the politics theater — as Sen. Barack Obama suggested on this morning’s GMA should be the case– then are Democrats not guilty of the same sin by attacking Cindy McCain for not releasing her tax returns?

It was just this month that the Democratic National Committee issued a press release saying that by "failing to release Cindy McCain’s returns, the McCain campaign is raising serious concerns about his own credibility, about how McCain’s position as a U.S. Senator may have benefited John and Cindy McCain’s business ventures, and about how McCain’s political career has benefited from her personal wealth."

Michelle Obama is being attacked, recall, for comments she made from a stage while campaigning for her husband. Should the Democrats "lay off" Mrs. McCain as well, to use Obama’s words? Is it "low class" to go after Cindy McCain on the tax issue?
