No public appearances for McCain or Palin today. Something is up. I was surprised they did not exploit Palin’s debate performance with a series of events. Instead, Sarah did a long interview with Carl Cameron that received a lot of media coverage. I must say, she looked terrific. No new campaign ads either. When they are focused on a theme, they tend to release ads systemically. Of course, there was the surprise announcement on Michigan, which some are now claiming is a ploy to deflate GOTV efforts in Detroit. Who knows? McCain doesn’t seem like the type of guy who needs a lot of debate preparation. They must be having some intense strategery sessions. The McCain campaign is definitely switching some gears.
