Finally Barack Obama finished his speech in Ohio saying that McCain represents “the politics of yesterday," while he promised that he represents "the party of tomorrow” (More Obama vs McCain - First Read -, 2008). And I tend to believe him. Work Cited (Obama, Barack Obama|Change We Can Believe In|Seniors, 2008) (McCain J. , McCain Tax Cut Plan, 2008) (McCain J. , Strategy for Victory in Iraq, 2008)
