From Fox:
The McCain camp also produced another ad featuring a Clinton supporter who now backs McCain over Obama.

“She had the experience and judgment to be president,” says Debra Bartoshevich, identified by the McCain campaign as a former Clinton delegate. Of McCain, she says: “I respect his maverick and independent streak, and now he’s the one with the experience and judgment. A lot of Democrats will vote McCain. It’s OK, really!”

Clinton, speaking publicly for the first time at the Democratic National Convention, said, “I am Hillary Clinton and I do not approve of this message.”

So what McCain should do now, see, is play that Hillary comment at the end of his next commercial, and then add himself saying: "Well I'm John McCain, and I did approve this message!"
