[Music] Male Announcer: Western states are growing fast.  And the demand for our water is growing even faster.  Water always has been Colorado's most precious resource.  And for almost a hundred years, the Colorado River Compact has helped protect our water rights.  But just last month John McCain said we should renegotiate the Compact, putting our water rights at risk. 

Listen to John McCain:

McCain clip: The Compact was, that is in effect obviously needs to be renegotiated...

Announcer: If the Compact is renegotiated, Colorado will lose water rights.  The only question is how much. 

Here's what Sen. Ken Salazar said in response to John McCain's proposal:

Salazer: It's a terrible idea.  There's no way renegotiating the Compact would do anything but hurt Colorado.

Announcer: John McCain supports George Bush's economic policies and he wants to take our water too.  That's not the change we need.

Obama: I'm Barack Obama, candidate for president, and I approve this message.

Announcer: Paid for by Obama for America.
