Obama Supporter Calls McCain "Warmonger"

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Barack Obama's presidential campaign today repudiated a liberal talk show host's description of John McCain as a warmonger.

The comment was made to an audience that Obama later addressed.

Ed Schultz was warming up the crowd yesterday at a fundraiser for the North Dakota Democratic party when he tagged the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting as a "warmonger."

Obama wasn't in the room when Schultz spoke. The candidate spoke after a series of introductions by the state's three Democrats in Congress.

Obama thanked Schultz and called him "the voice of progressive radio."

But today, an Obama campaign spokeswoman says in a statement that "John McCain is not a warmonger and should not be described as such."
