HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) _ For the second time in two weeks, Barack Obama is airing a TV ad rebutting John McCain's claim that Obama is
little more than a celebrity, like hotel heiress Paris Hilton.
The Obama campaign is airing a TV ad that claims McCain, not Obama, is ``Washington's biggest celebrity.''
A recent McCain ad mixed images of Obama on his European trip with video clips of pop figures Hilton and Britney Spears.
For weeks, Obama has tried to frame the election largely as a referendum on President Bush, using every chance to tie McCain to
the unpopular incumbent. The new Obama ad shows McCain hugging Bush while the voiceover says, ``as Washington embraced him, John McCain hugged right back.''
