Hiding may be Obama's best bet

With Senator John McCain rising the polls, Barak Obama is going into hiding under the guise of a 'family vacation' in Hawaii.

As Rob at SayAnything points out, "People tend to like the idea of Barack Obama a lot more than the reality."

When the key centrist voters who are going to decide the election, look closely at Obama, they aren't liking what they see.

Getting out of the harsh light of reality is perhaps Obama's best bet for getting his numbers up. It also gives him an excuse to keep avoiding debates with Senator John McCain.

Hiding from the American people and the press also saves Obama the embarrassment of answering questions about his possible VP pick John "Silky Pony" Edwards. Questions that he never had to answer because of the DNC/MSM's news black out on the Edwards sex scandal.
