I think it is kind of humorous that when you see the campaign adds you might actually come away thinking they have the same message. The Democrats say the Republicans have done a terrible job and so you need to vote change and vote Obama. The Republican candidates say the Republicans have done a terrible job in need of reform that could only come from a maverick. They are the real party seeking to change Washington so vote McCain. I guess it is all an effort to get as much distance between themselves and Bush as possible.
Something about that just seems humorous and sad to me all at the same time.
