New McCain ad: "Hillary's right"

On the day of her speech to the Democratic convention, McCain's campaign recycles some of Clinton's attacks on Obama.

John McCain's campaign is still trying as hard as it can to rain on the Democrats' parade by exploiting the divisions remaining from the Democratic primaries, not to mention the attacks that went on during them. On Tuesday, the day Hillary Clinton will address the Democratic convention, the McCain camp came out with an ad that is its most explicit effort in that direction so far.

The spot recycles part of Clinton's infamous anti-Obama "3 a.m." spot, and also a comment she'd made during the primary season contrasting McCain with Barack Obama: "I know Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience that he will bring to the White House. And Sen. Obama has a speech he gave in 2002."

The ad ends with the narrator saying, "Hillary's right. John McCain for president."
