Obama’s Magnetic Ways
Battered by his performance among the regular folk of Pennsylvania and Ohio, Barack Obama’s campaign is working hard in North Carolina and Indiana to fight any suggestion that he is elitist.
And what better way to say "I’m not a snob" than with a car magnet, the automobile adornment of the masses.
Perfect for the back of the minivan, alongside that soccer ball and yellow ribbon, the 5-inch "Vote for Change" magnet is free to anyone who contributes $15 or more by midnight Wednesday — when the April fund-raising will be tallied and scrutinized by pundits for possible signs of weakness.
It’s a clever strategy. Everybody likes free stuff. More importantly — it’s a step up from the bumper sticker. If things don’t work out for Obama, the magnet can come right off.
