It’s not unusual for a political campaign to buy a spot with a length measured by the number 30, but generally, the colon comes to the left of the number.

CBS and NBC are already in on it, and as of Friday, discussions were under way with ABC and Fox. The date will be 10/29/08, just about a week before Election Day, which may take Fox out of the running, due to its MLB World Series commitment.
