Obama's new "The Original" ad

So the latest ads out by Obama are doing just what John Kerry couldn't seem to figure out. He's attacking issues with substance. Moreover, he's finally
publicly tying McCain to Bush in his speeches and ads. In my opinion, this is the best way to defeat McCain without getting too nasty.

Take this ad for instance...

He says nothing untrue and does not personally attack McCain. He simply debunks the maverick label, illustrates McCain's connections to big oil and shows his relationship with Bush. He even throws in a line from a McCain ad. Nice touch all around. This is just what he needs to do to make McCain look like an angry old man who will say anything to win.
