Enthusiasm gone? Thin crowd for Obama in Ohio

A New York Times article at the link below reports on the "thin crowd" at the Obama Cleveland campaign rally.

Organizers explained it by saying Obama was competing on a Sunday afternoon with church, football and Halloween.

Football? That's not an excuse, the Cleveland Browns didn't play -- they were on a bye week.

As the report said, "the thin crowd was perhaps a foreboding sign in the waning days of the midterm races."
