And On the Eighth Day, It Rained On Obama

The One actually needed a raincoat. I figured the raindrops just bounced off him.
Gone were Obama's suit and tie. He wore jeans, sneakers and a waterproof raincoat. Still, shunning an umbrella, he got soaked. Obama later changed clothes before resuming his events.

McCain and Obama converged on Pennsylvania, a vote-rich state where Obama leads but McCain remains hopeful of a turnaround. Later, Obama was heading to Virginia, a longtime Republican state where he leads in polls.

Closing in on history, the front-running Obama has returned to broad, uplifting themes of change in hopes of ending the campaign in the most positive light.

The election is in one week.

Obama promised better days "if we're willing to reach deep down inside us, when times are tough, when it's cold, when it's raining, when it's hard — that's when we when stand up."
