McCain blasts Obama

McCain shows some teeth against Obama who apparently bait and switched on lobbying reform. Details here at the indispensible Real Clear Politics

"I would like to apologize to you for assuming that your private assurances to me regarding your desire to cooperate in our efforts to negotiate bipartisan lobbying reform legislation were sincere. When you approached me and insisted that despite your leadership's preference to use the issue to gain a political advantage in the 2006 elections, you were personally committed to achieving a result that would reflect credit on the entire Senate and offer the country a better example of political leadership, I concluded your professed concern for the institution and the public interest was genuine and admirable. Thank you for disabusing me of such notions...

Is McCain making all the right moves for 2008 by slapping down the Democrat hero du jour? Or is Obama just screwing up a whole lot and catching flak from all sides? (note: Obama took some heat from the left for his anti filibuster position on Alito.)
