McCain Uses Words The Clintons Will Probably Plagiarize

So Old John (and he did look old) just mounted a platform in Ohio to claim victory in Wisconsin -- and it was obvious who he is running against from the first moment. Every other sentence was directed against Obama.

That's all he's got. It's the all the Clintons have too, And we see how far it got them.

That just about says it all.
