A half an hour of Obama

Obama is spending vast amounts of money on his campaign:

Already advertising at record levels, Barack Obama has scheduled a half-hour commercial for prime time on Oct. 29, six days before Election Day.


Such a vast purchase of commercial time is a multimillion-dollar expense, but Obama has been spending dramatically on ads, overshadowing rival John McCain and the Republican National Committee.

Some might view this as a sign of political strength. I say as long as he is stuck at 49% in the polls, it is a sign of weakness.
