Back on trail, McCain drops Ayers in favor of 'Joe'

John McCain returned to the campaign trail Thursday more focused on his economic message and less on attacking Barack Obama. McCain didn't mention 60s radical William Ayers. Instead, he was in full populist pitch, stressing that he, not Obama, better understands what voters are going through and that he's the candidate with better solutions to their problems.
