Why Oh Why Can't We Have a Better Press Corps? (Elizabeth Holmes/Wall Street Journal Edition)

McCain Accuses Obama of Overconfidence: Elizabeth Holmes reports from Mesilla, N.M. on the presidential race.

John McCain slammed Barack Obama Saturday for being overconfident about his lead in the polls and predicted election night would feature a Dewey-Truman scenario. “What America needs now is someone who will finish the race before starting the victory lap,” McCain said to the crowd of several thousand at a rally here. “Someone who will fight to the end, not for himself but for his country.”

In remarks dripping with sarcasm and disdain, the Republican presidential candidate said brought up a story from the New York Times that said former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta has already penned a copy of Obama’s inaugural address. “I’m not making it up,” McCain said. “An awful lot of voters are still undecided but he’s decided for them that well, why wait, it’s time to move forward with his first inaugural address.”

Obama spokesman Bill Burton quickly refuted the attack. “While this charge is completely false and there is no draft of an inaugural address for Senator Obama, the last thing we need is a candidate like John McCain who just plans on re-reading George Bush’s,” he said.

Where is the paragraph that says: "McCain's charge was, of course, false. What he claimed to be a draft of Obama's inaugural address was a speech written last spring by John Podesta when he was a supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton. The New York Times's Jackie Calmes and Peter Baker misreported the story"?
