I think that if Obama plans on making any more stops out West in Colorado this week, he should seriously consider putting together a HUGE rally in Phoenix as a demoralizing blow to the McCain campaign and take advantage of the new poll numbers "surging" there.

A rally like this in McCain's home state of Arizona, just when the race is tightening there, might be a great investment to help put Obama over the top in the minds of many undecideds there, where, I presume (it’s my home state, though I live in Chicago now), there are many due to the large population influxes of the past few decades and the recent blue shifts.  The symbolic power of a large draw there would be a gut shot to McCain and might just produce an upset if timed right.

On a personal note, and I know I speak for many Arizonans, when I say it would be nice to see a Blue Arizona on Nov. 5th to repudiate Republicans like McCain and Renzi, as well as the hateful Sherrif "Joe the Nazi" Arpaio knuckle-draggers, and hateful border politics that have plagued this majestic state for decades.

Consider also what a morale-boosting 100K+ crowd in Phoenix would do for the Democratic party's efforts and recent surges there, the MSM news cycle dominance in these final days and as a killing blow to McCain who recently said, "I've a wonderful life. I have to go back and live in Arizona, be in the United States Senate representing them, a wonderful family, daughters and sons that I'm so proud of and a life that's been blessed."

The again, would an act like this just be political napalming?  O...the irony...

O...the justice...

Obama O8!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
