"Though the Obama campaign is keeping mum about whether it will definitely run spots, it has asked NBC Universal about Olympics advertising including $500,000, $2 million and $4 million packages of ads. (NBC presented those along with a $10 million package.) It's not only a sign that the Obama camp has faith it can continue its stellar fundraising achievements but a signal that a widening field of battleground states has the candidate contemplating national broadcast buys."

"But it took a bit of chutzpah - defined by the dictionary as 'shameless audacity' - for Obama to bring this up just days after the anti-war group MoveOn.org and a union ally paid $500,000 to run a maudlin and melodramatic ad attacking McCain. Clearly, Democrats know how to game the system as well."
The spin from the Obama camp - particularly in its latest e-mail to supporters - is wholly disingenuous. A good rule of thumb: How would you feel if the situation was reversed? In other words, Obamaphiles would be lambasting John McCain to high heaven right now if he pulled this move. More at Division Street later.
