Biden: McCain is ex-reformer turned Rove disciple

ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) -- Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says the once independent-minded John McCain has adopted serve-the-rich policies of President Bush and the divisive tactics of ex-Bush strategist Karl Rove.

In remarks prepared for delivery Monday in the Detroit suburb of St. Clair Shores, Biden says a McCain win in November would ensure four more years of Bush administration policies.

McCain spokeswoman Sarah Lenti disputes Biden's comments. She says the Delaware senator and Democratic nominee Barack Obama make up the most partisan presidential ticket in modern history.

Biden also plans a campaign stop later Monday in Flat Rock, south of Detroit.
