McCain, Obama show-off each other's "Cribs"

Presidential race tightens; Harvard regains top spot in college rankings; more fees at the airlines; and more.

Sen. John McCain's inability to readily recall the number of homes he owns inspired Obama campaign strategists to create a new TV ad. The Obama campaign is also framing the comment as a damaging admission during the present US mortgage crisis.

The McCain camp swiftly responded, citing Obama's own mansion with four fireplaces in tony Hyde Park, Chicago, as well as launching a Web site, "Obama Rezko: Shady Deal."

Polls show the race tightening as the canidates enter into September.
