Newsweek has a very intriguing article out today detailing some inside dope on both the McCain and the Obama campaigns that they’d been holding back until after the elction. The bit that’s likely to get the most play is this item on the Palin shopping spree dirt:
To me, though, the most interesting tibit is this small item about Obama expressing his thoughts on debate prep:
I love that (unspoken) answer and almost wish he’d actually said it during that debate. I not only find it amusing to get a glimpse into what’s really going through his head when he sometimes gives those halting, carefully deliberate answers to questions, I’m also heartened to know that what’s going on under the surface is even sharper and more incisive (not mention wittier), than we we see on top.
How will this article affect public perceptions for any of the candidates? I don’t think there’s anything really damaging to anyone but maybe Palin (McCain actually comes off as fairly decent).
