    end up helping Obama in the end.  In the last week, I was worried that he just was not going to close the gap in PA.  People kind of liked him from that bus tour but just didn't have a passion.  I think they are passionate now!  

    Hillary is seriously starting to overplay her hand.  The whole guns and religion thing is just beginning to sound phony coming from her.  I love the reporter who caught her off guard asking about the last time she went to church.  "It's not relevant."  Then why are you attacking him about something you yourself do not practice?

    I think he is right to play off the "bitter" remark because that is exactly what people are feeling.  It is the same vein Edwards was trying to tap into and in the economically forgotten towns of PA it is a good one to mine.  For her to deny that is just crazy.  And to make the case people aren't bitter as half of the $100 million couple is also hard to swallow.  

    Obama would be wise to remind people he is the one that was raised by a single mother and was helping steelworkers while she was a corporate lawyer working for the types closing down their plants.  In a backward way that was not intended by anyone, he is now coming off as someone who genuinely understands the fact the Rust Belt economy has been in a recession for 25 years rather than the person who sounded nice but really didn't grasp what they were going through.
