McCain Extends Olive Branch to Top Democrats
    2008-07-30 22:41:18     Xinhua
While increasing sharp attacks on rival Barack Obama, U.S. Republican presidential hopeful John McCain extended olive branch to other top Democrats, ABC News reported Wednesday.

The senator from Arizona pledged that if elected president, he would work closely with Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, praising her as an effective leader and an "inspiration to millions of Americans."

"I respect Speaker Pelosi. I think she's one of the great American success stories," McCain told reporters in San Francisco, Calif. Tuesday evening.

He also made compliments for Hillary Clinton, Obama's opponent in the Democratic primaries, noting her "inspiration to millions of Americans. "

McCain had high praise for the 2000 Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore and his advocacy on the issue of climate change, too.

Recent polls indicate a rebound of McCain's rating despite Obama's highly-publicized overseas trip last week.
