There goes the message

You've heard the Democrat's message. John McCain is John McSame. Third Bush term. Blah, blah, blah. It is dishonest, but Barack Obama and the DNC don't have a problem with that.
But today, Barack broke the talking point. What did he say? According to AP's Liz Sidoti:
"You have a real choice in this election. Either Democrat would be better than John McCain," Obama said to cheers from a rowdy crowd in central Pennsylvania. Then he said: "And all three of us would be better than George Bush."
Ooops. The Politico's Ben Smith describes this as a "break with the core of the Democratic Party's strategy." But you know, it's tough when the "core Democratic Party strategy" is to convince the public of something that even Democratic candidates don't believe.
Back to the drawing board. And try to be honest this time...
If you know how.
