After a barrage of false, negative attacks from Republican John McCain, Barack Obama fires back with a new ad which sends a clear message that he's not going to sit back and let the false accusations stand. The ad hits the aging Arizona Senator at his weakest point -- George Bush. True, showing pictures of McCain hand in hand with Bush is like taking candy from a baby, but it works. In the end, the ad builds on the growing sentiment that the McCain camp is running scared and leaves Obama looking...dare I say it?

That's change we can believe in.
Obama: I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message.
