CNN.com is reporting a massive response the the rallies planned in key primary states South Carolina and New Hampshire.
In South Carolina, the Obama campaign has given out 18,000 free tickets for a rally in the University of South Carolina's Colonial Center this weekend--the event is now "sold out." So is another similar event in Manchester, New Hampshire. There are tickets available for two events in Iowa.

In this we see Obama's strategy for the last weeks of the primary season. Until now, Obama has allowed his image to remain just a little hazy and undefined. Now his easy jog has broken into a sprint for the finish and it's abundantly clear that he's caught the campaign of Hillary Clinton off guard.
Hillary's instinct will be to attack, but if she gives into that impulse it will only hurt her.
