A new advertising campaign puts forward an image of a president who appears to be half Barack Obama and half George W. Bush. The attention-catching photo introduces this question:

"Who's better on AIDS?" it asks.

The campaign is sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, an advocacy group that also provides medical treatment and HIV testing in 26 countries. The organization is upset  that Obama didn't appear at the International AIDS Conference held in Washington last week, and that Obama has asked Congress to cut spending for fighting HIV and AIDS.

We thought this was an excellent opportunity to review Obama's one AIDS-related promise on the Obameter.

We gave rated this promise a Compromise on our Obameter; read the complete report to find out why.
