McCain Invokes 2008 Campaign Promise at Summit

Thursday, 25 February 2010 01:19 PM EST

President Barack Obama has upbraided Sen. John McCain for resorting to political "talking points" at a summit Obama organized to resolve fights over a healthcare overhaul.

After McCain used time there to complain that Obama reneged on a campaign promise to bring "change in Washington," the president bluntly told the Arizona Republican that "we're not campaigning any more. The election is over."

McCain retorted that he's "reminded of that every day."

McCain said people don't understand why healthcare legislation was produced with dealmaking "behind closed doors." He said Obama promised better governance during the campaign "and what we got was a process you and I both said we would change in Washington."
