WASHINGTON (CNN) - The battle over who's a celebrity continues.
Barack Obama's campaign fired back today, releasing a campaign commercial that suggests Republican presumptive presidential nominee John McCain is a celebrity.
The ad starts by saying that "for decades, he's been Washington's biggest celebrity. And as Washington embraced him, John McCain hugged right back."
The commercial concludes by saying that the senator from Arizona is "a Washington celebrity playing the same old Washington games."
The commercial appears to be a response to a number of ads that the McCain campaign released over the past two weeks that suggest that Barack Obama is a celebrity and not ready for the White House.
The Obama campaign says its new ad, titled "Embrace," will run in some of the battleground states in which the McCain commercials that ridicule Obama's celebrity are currently airing.
