John McCain is criticizing his opponent's performance in Friday night's debate.
McCain says Barack Obama didn't have "such a good night," claiming the Democrat tried to use the looming market meltdown for
political gain. He told the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance in Ohio via satellite that Obama sees the problem as something "to be
exploited first and solved later."
Obama's camp is also seizing on the debate as campaign fodder and has already made up a new ad critical of McCain for never once
using the term "middle class."
Obama's campaign manager also says McCain's efforts to paint
Obama as inexperienced on foreign affairs was "sophomoric."
The next debate is between the two vice presidential candidates,
Joe Biden and Sarah Palin, Thursday in St. Louis.
