How Barack Obama Might Reach 50% in the Polls.—

Many pundits on the right are underestimating the ease with which Barack Obama has it within his power to get a 3-8% bump in support in the polls.

If Barack --- or for that matter, Michelle — Obama decides to make a MUCH bigger deal about this topic (after all, it's already part of Barack's repertoire), he could get a BIG bump in the polls this week.

In a sense, it's sad that such a tack might be necessary for Barack Obama to get a big bump, but there it is.
