Tim Russert Asked Obama About Keeping His Word on Public Financing

I think the McCain campaign should run an ad with just Russert's question ...

"Last year, you said, if you were the nominee, you would opt for public financing in the General Election ... and now, Senator McCain has said, calling your bluff, let's do it.  You seem to be waffling ... why won't you keep your word -- in writing -- that you made ...?"  - Tim Russert to Obama

Obama goes on to say that if he's the nominee, he would, "sit down with John McCain and make sure that we have a system that is fair for both sides."

... Yeah, right.
