The new ad opens with a deep-voiced narrator intoning, "it shall be known that in 2008, the world will be blessed. They will call him 'The One.'" The ad splices in a series of quotes from Obama throughout the campaign, including one where Obama talks about the light that will shine down upon voters as an epiphany (that one was a poke back at Hillary Clinton during the primaries). The ad end with this line: "Barack Obama may be 'The One,' but is he ready to lead.
The McCain camp sent the ad to supporters in a fund-raising appeal, calling it their "latest fun video." McCain spokeswoman Nicolle Wallace tells CBS News' John Bentley that there is an "important role for humor in all campaigns. I think all of us would slit our wrists if it wasn't for that."
