McCain Backs Down To Obama Campaign On Using Petraeus To Raise Money

Slapped down.

Sen. John McCain said he'll no longer use pictures of himself and the top U.S. commander in Iraq in fundraising materials after being criticized by Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle and others.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee was criticized by Sen. John Kerry and Doyle for e-mailing supporters a picture showing him shaking hands with Gen. David Petraeus that included the phrase "Leadership Demonstrated" above a link to "Show Your Support."
