The scoop from Washington

Obama praising McCain in new McCain spot. Obama react.

| No Comments

DES MOINES, IA--Reacting to the new McCain spot--featuring Barack Obama praising John McCain for his work on climate change, Obama inserted some new language in his stump speech:

"Just this morning, the McCain campaign put out an ad that showed me praising him and Senator Lieberman for their work on global warming - as if there's something wrong with acknowledging when an opponent has said or done something that makes sense. I think we need more of that in Washington. I don't disagree with Senator McCain on everything, and I respect his occasional displays of independence."
