Barack Obama's camp unveils one of its Olympic spots. It's a salute to the American worker called "Hands." (I think both candidates will refrain from hard-hitting attack ads during their national broadcast spots running in games. But I could be wrong.)

John McCain's camp released a spot dubbed "Painful" in which he accuses Barack Obama of raising taxes. It's running in swing states. Obama's camp immediately released a statement countering the claims with information from Factcheck.org: "The resolution does not contain a specific provision to raise tax rates, but rather assumes that most of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire as scheduled in 2011."
