Master Of The Obvious

"Sen. McCain was asked whether he would help Mr. Obama with his administration, and he responded, 'Obviously.'"

Is it that obvious? I mean, McCain was saying not very long ago that Obama represented dangerous socialism. I understand that for various reasons he might want to help Obama, but to voters who took his campaign rhetoric at face value, it's not totally obivous why he would.
