Obama in the Corner  —  Let me say at the outset:  —  I'll be voting for John McCain on November 4.  —  I'll be voting for the man who was right about the surge, who holds clear-eyed views about terrorism and America's enemies, who has fought for leaner government over 20 years …

Jason Horowitz / New York Observer:

Dem strategists see landslide in the making  —  Three weeks of historic economic upheaval has done more than just tilt a handful of once-reliably Republican states in Barack Obama's direction.  Democratic strategists are now optimistic that the ongoing crisis could lead to a landslide Obama victory.

Reporter's Notebook: Seeing How The Other Half Lives  —  From CBS News' Dean Reynolds:  —  (NASHVILLE, TENN.) - After most of the previous 12 months covering Barack Obama's campaign for the presidency, it was interesting, instructive and, well, relaxing to follow John McCain for the last few days.

How did Newsweek get Sarah Palin to pose with a rifle?  —  How did Newsweek convince Gov. Sarah Palin to pose with a rifle for its cover?  —  Simple.  It didn't.  —  Instead, it used an archive (fancy speak for old) stock photo of her taken back in June 2002 and used it for the cover without her knowledge.
Dan Balz / Washington Post:
McCain Campaign Tries To See Glass as Half Full  —  Behind in Polls, Republican Needs Momentum  —  It was a late night for John McCain's campaign — a post-debate repast of karaoke until the wee hours of the rain-soaked morning.  They sang neither in celebration nor to drown their sorrows.

Prayers for Dean Barnett  —  So often in this business, we become friends with people whom we've never met face to face.  That's certainly true of Dean Barnett of the Weekly Standard.  I've long admired his writing, and Dean has always been kind enough to request me as a guest whenever he guest hosts for Hugh Hewitt.

BAITING MCCAIN.... One almost gets the sense that Barack Obama wants John McCain to confront him directly with some of these guilt-by-association attacks.  ABC's Charlie Gibson sat down with Obama yesterday, and asked whether he was surprised that McCain didn't go in this direction during Tuesday's debate.

Voters Haven't Decided Yet  —  Now it's up to the candidates to drive home their message.  —  Tuesday night's presidential debate was good entertainment.  Both candidates were animated and loose throughout a wide-ranging discussion.  Sen. Barack Obama did well in Sen. John McCain's favorite format.
