Four Days Out: Obama Not Letting Up

Barack Obama is showing no let up going into the final weekend before Election Day.

The first stop on today's schedule takes Obama to the same place where it all began with his first primary season win -- Iowa.

Then, after a Halloween stop at home, he'll close out the day at a rally in the Chicago suburb of Gary, Indiana.

Polls in Indiana show the race is tight in what's normally a Republican-leaning state.

But with rallies scheduled across the country, many of them in traditionally Republican-leaning states, Obama hints none of the polls will mean anything on Tuesday if those who say they support him don't turn out to vote.

It's also reported that Illinois Congressman Rahm Emanuel has been approached about being Obama's chief of staff. Emanuel says it's hard to talk about a job that doesn't exist yet.

    Ain't this a hoot! Republicans whining over how much money is spent on a campaign. You have had the greater campaign war chest for most, if not all, presidential elections for years. Evidently, y'all can't stand it when the shoe is on the other foot; hypocrites!

    Obama should have put that money in the economy, but he's going to win because of the ignorant, un-educated people in the U.S. who are too lazy to get jobs or go back to school.

    How is it okay for Obama to spend MILLIONS in air time to talk for 30 mins about his parents, but our country is in a crisis and government just had to approve a $700 billion dollar bail out plan. Im wondering is Obama going to share and spread his wealth with me? or with the rest of America? Thats what he plans to do with our money right?

    This is a prime example of how an election can be purchased with enough money. What happend to his pledge/promise not to take "public money"? The first of many lies to come, he will make Clinton look like a saint.
