These two stories highlight a couple of things that undercut a a couple of the narratives that have been swirling for some time now.

First – Money has always been held as one of the most important factors in being able to win an election. This CW is why so many people discount McCain's chances. Never mind the chapter in Freakonomics that dealt with the subject directly (and IMHO did a fairly good job of debunking it) – what I have yet to see anyone explain is, if it is true then why isn't Obama running away with it in PA right now?

I am not saying he won't win – he very well may – but if money is such an important factor in winning shouldn't he be destroying her right now?

Second – If all of this momentum behind Obama and particularly this massive "Change" movement that has been talked about for so long is as deep and powerful as everyone makes it out to be – again, why isn't he running away with this thing yet?

I unfortunately haven't had time to look into a couple of things the way I would like in order to provide substance to my take on these questions that have been nagging me but doesn't it seem like there is at least the possibility for some alternate factors that no one has identified or discussed yet?
