Is this really a denial?

I've been following the McCain story throughout the day. I've heard John McCain say that he would never do anything improper. I've heard him say this is a smear campaign. I've heard him say that he would never do anything to interfere with his responsibilities, or influence his decisions. He believes that he should always work for the betterment of the American people. Something did not seem right to me.

Therefore, I went to his election website, to see if I could get a clearer statement. This is what I got.

Statement By Communications Director Jill Hazelbaker

ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today issued the following statement by Communications Director Jill Hazelbaker:

"It is a shame that the New York Times has lowered its standards to engage in a hit and run smear campaign. John McCain has a 24-year record of serving our country with honor and integrity. He has never violated the public trust, never done favors for special interests or lobbyists, and he will not allow a smear campaign to distract from the issues at stake in this election.

"Americans are sick and tired of this kind of gutter politics, and there is nothing in this story to suggest that John McCain has ever violated the principles that have guided his career."

O.K., politicians are very careful about the words they use. Why is McCain's camp being so careful not to say something like.... I never had a personal relationship with that woman....

It makes me wonder.....
