Ouch. John McCain goes after Obama as an old-style politician more harshly than he has in the past in a new ad, "Hypo:"

The problem is it may be enough to be a relatively unknown old-style politician, as long as everyone's talking about the economy, and the unknown is not a Republican. It may have become as simple as that, unless McCain can find a way to connect concerns about Obama's past associations, far Left liberalism, and lack of leadership to voters' concerns about the economy.
