One idea on the green background: green is the opposite colour to red. Thus, things placed in front of green seem more red by comparison. Thus, instead of pasty-white (and old), McCain can at least look rosy-cheeked.

still looks kinda pasty and old to me...

mccain would be smarter not to start taking obama on yet, the democratic nomination may be "decided" but until she concedes clinton could still cause a lot of ruckus. the longer the democrats are tied up with in-fighting the better for mccain. by addressing obama as the nominee he gives him credibility where he could create more trouble for him by ignoring him or behaving as though the nomination is not settled yet. perhaps.
having said that, it's about time, and i'm glad that obama will be the nominee.

Actually, the green is so vivid it reflects back onto the candidate's skin. It's a really poor choice for anyone, but especially for someone who's already old and pale.

I think it was so they could greenscreen in some supporters if they wanted to. See the Colbert Report: http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2008/06/stephen-colbert.html Minute 2:20
