McCain Ad Makes Obama a Spokesman for McCain
The McCain campaign has launched a very clever ad on global warming. The entire commercial consists of a clip of Sen. Barack Obama saying supportive things about a climate bill that Sen. John McCain co-sponsored with Sen. Joe Lieberman. Take a look:
Obama did support the McCain-Lieberman bill, which went down to defeat because it called for a carbon cap-and-trade system. Both presidential candidates want to introduce this kind of a market-based system to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Who knows whether McCain’s ad will prove effective. But, I have to say, it is nice to see a campaign ad about global warming — even if it’s extremely late in the game.
