August 25, 2008: Dems’ attack theme: McCain’s houses (Politico)

  • "You'll see folks in no uncertain terms lay down exactly the differences between Barack Obama and John McCain," said Obama's press secretary, Bill Burton, who said that contrast would be one of the convention's two core messages. The convention's goal, he said, will be to "make sure the American people know who Barack Obama is and where he's going to take this country. And let people know the crystal-clear choice between Obama, who wants to fundamentally change business as usual in Washington, and John McCain, who is just more of the same."
