Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama took off the gloves and went bare-knuckle, toe-to-toe Sunday as both presidential candidates accelerated their rhetoric two days before Pennsylvanians go the primary polls.

Clinton criticized Obama on Sunday for including John McCain when saying all three presidential candidates would be better for the country than President Bush.

"We need a nominee who will take on John McCain, not cheer on John McCain," she said at a rally in Johnstown.

Obama had said: "Either Democrat would be better than John McCain ... and all three of us would be better than George Bush."

At a town hall meeting in Reading, Obama said Clinton believed in "the say-anything, do-anything, special interest-driven politics of Washington -- that that's how it's got to be, that that's how the game is played."

"I think we've got to change the tone of our politics," he said. "Our campaign is not perfect. There have been times when ... if you get elbowed enough, you start elbowing back."

Clinton said it was Obama who had gone negative since their Philadelphia debate last week.

"It's no wonder that my opponent has been so negative these last few days of the campaign because I think you saw ... a big difference between us," she said at a rally in Bethlehem. "While my opponent says one thing, his campaign, he does another. You can count on me to tell you what I will do," she said in Johnstown.
