I know that Barack Obama has the better environmental policies. I know he loves bicycles. I know he has to attract the middle American audience. But really, sponsoring a NASCAR race car? Via Wonkette, we learn from Sports Illustrated that "for the first time in history, a major presidential candidate may sponsor a race car in NASCAR's premier series. According to sources, Barack Obama's campaign is in talks to become the primary sponsor of BAM Racing's No. 49 Sprint Cup car for the Pocono race on August 3.
Back in the day when I used to work political campaigns, my manager used to say "work from your strength"- don't go after the voters you don't have a hope for while ignoring your natural base. I hope he is going to sponsor a few bicycle racing teams as well. ::Sports Illustrated
