Obama says he wants no regrets on effort come Election Day

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- Barack Obama says he wants no regrets come Election Day when it comes to effort.

The Democratic presidential candidate plans to spend the day campaigning in three states where polls show the race to be close. He'll make stops in Florida, Virginia and Missouri.

In an interview broadcast on ABC's "Good Morning America," Obama says when the polls close next Tuesday, he doesn't want to say to himself, "Here's something I didn't do, here's an argument I didn't make" or "here's a hand I didn't shake."

He jumped on a new Commerce Department report showing the economy shrank at a 0.3 percent annual rate in the third quarter. In a statement, Obama says that's "a direct result of the Bush administration's trickle down" policies, which he says John McCain has embraced and would continue.

McCain's campaign counters that Obama's policies "would only accelerate the economy's decline."
