Rove Says McCain Ads Go Too Far -- When Karl Rove says a campaign ad has gone too far, one must ask just what is the world coming to? On Fox yesterday, he said, “McCain has gone in his ads one step too far, and sort of attributing to Obama things that are, you know, beyond the 100-percent-truth test.

Meanwhile, Merrill Lynch is now part of Bank of America after a $50 billion purchase was agreed. And insurance giant AIG may need a $40 billion loan from the Federal Reserve to stay afloat.

Carlos Zambrano still threw a heck of a game.
