Obama's McCain Smackdown: Stop Campaigning, Election's Over





President Obama and Arizona Sen. John McCain revisited their 2008 presidential race in a testy exchange Thursday at the White House-hosted health care summit in which the president told his vanquished Republican challenger to get over his loss.

At the end of extended remarks by McCain about the contentious process that brought 38 of 535 lawmakers to the presidential guest quarters at Blair House to discuss the stalled health care overhaul, McCain noted that both men campaigned in 2008 on bringing change to Washington.

As McCain went on to talk about the influence of special interests and lobbyists, Obama tried to interject to which McCain asked if he could finish his statement.
