New Obama, McCain rows flare after debate

WASHINGTON (AFP) — White House foes Barack Obama and John McCain tore into one another over the reeling US economy as ill-feeling from their first debate spilled over five weeks from election day.

Democrat Obama went after Republican nominee McCain at a rally in North Carolina, saying he had come across in the first of three debate clashes Friday as out of touch on the economic and national security perils facing America.

McCain spent most of the day holed up in his campaign office and apartment outside Washington making a flurry of calls designed to help seal a 700 billion dollar finance industry bailout before markets open on Monday.
