Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel: "George Bush has put the middle class in a hole and John McCain has a plan to keep digging that hole with George Bush's shovel. Mr. President, we will be forever in your debt. . . . You would think the one thing President Bush was good at was inheriting things."
Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa.: McCain "calls himself a maverick, but he votes with George Bush 90 percent of the time. That's not a maverick, that's a sidekick."
Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland: Bush "came into office on third base, and then he stole second, [...] and John McCain cheered him every step of the way.".
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: "It makes sense that George Bush and John McCain will be together next week in the Twin Cities, because these days they're awfully hard to tell apart."
