Barack Obama resumed his Democratic U.S. presidential campaign Saturday, pounding his Republican opponent, John McCain, as a clone of President George W. Bush.

The goal is to net at least 12 more House votes than the rescue proposal received Monday when lawmakers rocked the political and financial worlds by rejecting it.
