McCain invokes Clinton (Bill, this time) again

The senator enjoys playing the new wedge politics: Clinton vs. Obama.

Published September 30, 2008 4:49PM (EDT)

The crafty dodger is at it again. The McCain campaign is using a Clinton to criticize Barack Obama, but this time it's Bill, not Hillary. Check out the new ad, "Rein," in which Senator Deregulation attempts to use Bill Clinton's words to blame the financial crisis on Obama and the Democrats.

Is there any bottom to the McCain campaign? Seriously: Is there?
