    Is anyone shocked? To be honest, I am. Didn't see this coming.

    What would be funny is if Obama had to give equal time to McCain.

    :D

    It's a great idea. I wish they had OBAMA channel on Time Warner Cable. :(

    It must be very cheap. Interesting angle though, I imagine there are times on cable when Obama tv might be as good as anything else that's on.

    What I'm most curious about is what will happen in the final 3 weeks of the campaign when the antiObama 527s are expected to unleash a flurry of ads with Rezko, Wright, Ayers, and others, in my view, in distortions of Obama. I would guess that the Obama campaign has a good counterattack, and I would guess that the liberal 527s will fight fire with fire. So, for every Rezko, there's a Keating; for every Wright and Ayers, there are McCain's issues with MIAs, his reputation as a womanizer and adulterer, and his connection to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire connected to the underworld. My point is not argue those various issues, but to ponder what the last few weeks will be like. I hope there will be some civility, but I doubt it.

    It very well could be better then some of what's on late night.

    Yeah, I share your concern. I think it's going to be a blood bath. Civility will be out the window. Forgive me now for the posts I will be making :p

    I can't understand why the Obama people would want to buy their own cable channel, they already have one, it is called MSNBC.
