Not quite a roadblock


Come 8:00 pm ET tonight, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama will be all over the dial. His campaign has bought half-hour blocks on Fox, CBS, NBC and MSNBC. There had also been talks with ABC, but the Washington Post reported that by the time ABC officials decided to move programming to accommodate the time buy, the Obama campaign had decided it had all the networks it needed. So, the Obama political pitch will be up against a new episode of “Pushing Daisies.” Michelle Obama told Jay Leno on the “Tonight Show” that her daughters were concerned about daddy taking over all of TV, until she reassured them that he would not be on the Disney Channel.
