McCain Ad : "Obama Praising McCain"

The Honest Politician Analysis : This ad from the McCain campaign shows a previous clip made within the senate where Obama was praising McCain and Lieberman for their "leadership" on the subject of a proposed bill that establishes limits for greenhouse gas emissions. In my opinion, this ad does nothing for the McCain campaign and was a total waste of money. If anything it was a good push for Obama showing that he has respect for both sides of the senate. From what I have seen of Obama for the past 2 years, is the type of person he is. He has always been a person who was "hearty in his approbation and lavish in his praise". Speaking of which, there is a book called "How to Win Friends and Influence People" written by Dale Carnegie in the year of 1936 that teaches this principle along with many other positive principles. Dale Carnegie wrote this book based upon previous positive attitudes of US presidents. From what I have seen from Obama, is that he portrays every principle in the book and that's what we need in America - especially in our days of crisis and the lost respect throughout the world. I would not be surprised if he carries this book with him - as if it was his bible. There are updated versions of this book and would highly recommend this book to everyone. NOW GO VOTE!

Not only do I agree with your assessment but I'd add that the clip puts McCain in the unwanted position of acknowledging Obama as a worthy endorser, which contradicts his questioning of the Illinois senator's judgement throughout the campaign. In other words, it comes across as "Vote for me; even Obama thinks I'm a valid choice." A waste of money, indeed.
