Jim Vandehei Admits The Media Might Be a Little Smitten With the Obamas

You don't say.

“We just posted an item about the media’s reaction. Not a shocker here, Wolf Blitzer saying it was a grand slam; Chuck Todd saying that Michelle Obama owned this convention in a way no speaker owned the convention in Tampa, and David Gergen on CNN said if they have two more nights like this they could probably break this race open. The mainstream media tends to be quite smitten with the Obamas so I don’t know if we should over interpret it but there’s no doubt that’s sort of how all the taste makers in media as we talk what it does have a way shaping certainly the coverage in the morning. So I think you can anticipate that tomorrow is going to be quite glowing.”

Drew had a good take -- it was a good speech. It was also a speech that attempted to pretend the last four years never happened, and pretend it was 2008 again, with Obama looking forward to finally becoming president and lowering those sea levels.

This is the sort of thing that PolitiHack can't "fact-check," but it's misleading nonetheless.

Oh, and the planned Obama address in the 70,000+ stadium has been cancelled and moved into a 20,000 seat indoor hall, because, weather. The specific weather they're afraid of is not knowing weather they could fill a 74,000 seat stadium.
