Obama Plays to Thin Crowd in Cleveland


I’d like to think this is an omen of what’s to come on Tuesday.

President Obama wrapped up a weekend of last-minute campaigning in Ohio on Sunday, addressing Democrats in an indoor arena that, in a sign of the “enthusiasm gap” that the president is working so hard to close, was little more than half full.

About 8,000 people attended the Democratic National Committee’s Moving America Forward’ rally at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center, a hall where the capacity is 13,000. The rafters were largely empty.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Obama himself out there knocking on doors Tuesday afternoon.
