McCain congratulates Obama

Republican presidential nominee John McCain will run this ad during the coverage of Barack Obama's acceptance speech. After a stream of (apparently effective) negative ads from McCain, this one is a rather clever change of emphasis. You can watch Obama's speech live on the Washington Post's website or on C-SPAN.

UPDATE: It seems the text of Obama's entire speech has been released. Leaking extracts is pretty common, but the whole thing? Weird.
