Barack Obama hasn't suspended his campaign; instead, he's speaking directly to voters again.

John McCain may have suspended his campaign, but Barack Obama hasn't, and he's taking the opportunity to press his advantage on the economy. His campaign has just released a new, minute-long ad in which Obama speaks directly to the camera -- and to voters -- about his plan for the economy.

This is the second such spot; the first one, which ran a full (and unusual) two minutes, came out just over a week ago. The Obama camp says this latest ad will be broadcast in "key targeted states."

The ad can be viewed below.
