    ...where Senator Obama has to ask that he be allowed to answer the question without being interrupted paints it as a little more testy than a typical Q and A.

    But I think this is a win-win for us. The questions are valid. The answer was valid. The "run for office yourself" would be snarky coming from a lifetime politician. It isn't coming from a candidate who was doing voter registration drives in South Chicago a mere 16 years ago.

    What the causal observer (the ones whose votes we're fighting for) will come away with from this is reinforcement for how this candidate can listen and incorporate views, not by their full adoption, but by their consideration.

    If there was a plus coming out of FISA its that he won't do things just because they may be deal-breakers for a particular constituency. He proved that again today. On FISA that still stings, but in the 30secondsoundbite world, that's probably a good message overall.

    If it were true, they couldn't say it on Fox News. -6.62 -5.90
