Obama has purchased a half-hour of airtime on CBS and NBC, sources confirm.
The special is a smart move for the Obama campaign, said Larry Sabato, a political analyst and director of the Center of Politics at the University of Virginia. "Obama's theme is not just change but unity, so he's appealing to the whole nation rather than a handful of toss-up states," Sabato said. "He wants to win the popular vote by a good margin, which will enable him to govern." - Link
By October 29th, McCain won't be able to afford to sit on a mountain top and send smoke signals, much less 30 minutes of airtime!
"You can call the dogs in, wet the fire, and leave the house. The hunt's over." - James Carville, October 7, 2008
Really nice of him, as other family members are back home eating worms he is spending loads of money to be on T.V.
I guess Obama is more Republican than people think.
Good point Blake. Perhaps the McCain family could donate some of their millions to help the American people who are in need.
Blake, let me explain something to you. There are many ppl who do have an addiction to painkillers, BUT that don't steal prescription pads, forge signatures nor do they steal money/drugs from their charity.
CORRECTION: Cindy has not been OPEN about her past. She doesn't want to speak about that, because it cracks her facade that she puts on for guillible snipes like you. Like her tax returns...she doesn't want it brought up. And yes, I do know that she has showed them, but with hesitation.
All hail to Cindy, because she adopted a child with a cleft palate...against the wishes of McCain. Does this mean she is above the fray? Nope, it means that she like countless of REGULAR people have done something good.
BTW-I am well acquainted with "Operation Smile."
What's the point? Theresa Heinz is active in more charities and gives more money than Cindy McCain. That wasn't enough to prevent us (the Republican Party) from assassinating John Kerry's character in '04.
SEPARATED AT BIRTH?
Blake, Blake Blake....when are you going to learn that we are too informed for a poor little troll like you? You wrote: <she evn took in a child that Mother Teresa implored she do > WRONG! Yes, they adopted the child, but the story about Mother Teresa imploring Cindy to do so is, well Blake, it's an outright lie. The baby was adopted from one of Mother Teresa's orphanages, but Cindy didn't even meet Mother Teresa, who wasn't even in the country at the time. After being busted on this one, McCain had to change the story on his campaign website.
Check your facts please. You are really looking foolish, and give us absolutely no reason to believe anything you say. You're just a parrot, repeating words you've been taught.
DON'T FEED THE TROLLS PLEASE!!!
WOW! What a birthday present!
Thanks Barack....best present I've gotten in years!!
Observation: the scheduled air date happens to be the 79th anniversary of the stock market crash, October 29, 1929, the harbinger of the Great Depression.
Here we are in the midst of a financial crisis, the market is down 30+ percent ytd, Americans are in panic mode, and Obama is on tv in his strong, calm, leadership mode.
That One/Biden '08
The problems we face will not be solved by the minds that created them.
Oh! What a great observation... a documentary on the similarities between then & now and how we have to change something fast and take real action before history repeats itself!
