Barack Obama wasn’t the only presidential candidate setting records over the weekend. AP news is reporting that, in a day that made the candidates of both major parties look lazy, independent candidate Ralph Nader delivered 255 minutes of speeches to 21 Massachusetts communities on Saturday.

When Sarah Palin quoted Ronald Reagan in the vice presidential debate, I was moved. At the culmination of her cocky evening at the podium opposite Joe Biden, her final statement quoting Reagan was a moment of seriousness-of-purpose that took me by surprise: "It was Ronald Reagan who said that freedom is always just one generation away from extinction. We don't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. We have to fight for it and protect it and then hand it to them, so that they shall do the same, or we're going to find ourselves spending our sunset years telling our children, and our children's children, about a time in America, back in the day, when men and women were free."
DENVER and FORT COLLINS -- It was Colorado's biggest show yet. After Barack Obama attracted 19,000 to a February rally on the University of Denver campus, people knew the Illinois senator was going to be popular in Colorado. Then came Obama's acceptance speech at Mile High Stadium during the Democratic National Convention attended by 84,000 in August. Then, with one week remaining before America votes on Election Day, Obama drew an estimated 100,000 people to Civic Center Park in Denver for a morning rally followed by another in Fort Collins that drew another 45,000 to Colorado State University.
