CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) -- Democrat Barack Obama says John McCain is trying to divide the country with angry remarks and TV ads.
Obama told Ohio voters Friday: "It's not hard to rile up a crowd by stoking anger and division."
But he says American's aren't looking for someone who can divide the country. He says "they are looking for someone who can lead this country. ... Now more than ever it is time to put country ahead of politics."
Obama is criticizing McCain's economic plans during his two-day Ohio tour.
He is not directly responding on the stump to the Republican's claim that Obama has associated with a former 1960s terrorist. But Obama has told a radio talk show that he thought the ex-radical William Ayers, now a college professor, was rehabilitated.
