ARLINGTON, Va. — U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today released its latest television ad, "Obama Praising McCain." The ad highlights Barack Obama's past praise for John McCain on the issue of confronting global climate change.

The video opens with the announcer prefacing the ad by saying, "The truth on global warming."

Then Obama, speaking at a Senate hearing of the Committee On Environment and Public Works in January of 2007, says, "The right approach begins with the proposal put forward by Senator Lieberman and Senator McCain. The Lieberman-McCain bill establishes limits for greenhouse gas emissions. It's a framework that's not only good for the environment, it's also good for business."

Obama then thanks Lieberman and McCain, "for the outstanding leadership that they've shown" on the issue of global climate change.

"To remain below these limits, the bill encourages the market to determine how best to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, rewarding cost effective approaches using a system of tradable allowances."

The ad will air in key states.
