Obama Campaign Rejects Radio Host's McCain Comments

Barack Obama's campaign says John McCain is not a warmonger and shouldn't be described as one.

It's a response to comments made by a talk radio host during a fundraiser that Obama later addressed.

Nationally syndicated radio host Ed Schultz was warming up the crowd at a $100-a-person fundraiser for the North Dakota Democratic party when he tagged the presumed Republican nominee as a "warmonger." Obama wasn't in the room when Schultz spoke, but thanked Schultz during his speech and called him "the voice of progressive radio."

McCain called on Obama to condemn the comments.

The roles were reversed in February, when McCain quickly condemned the anti-Obama remarks of conservative talk radio host Bill Cunningham at a McCain rally. Cunningham referred repeatedly to Obama using his full name -- Barack Hussein Obama -- and called him a "hack, Chicago-style" politician.
