Obama Seizes an Opportunity
Often, the candidate who winds up "winning" a debate is the one who is able to take advantage of an opportunity.
So, when CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked the candidates to raise their hands if they thought English should be the official language of the United States, former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) was the lone person to raise his hand. But Sen. Obama jumped in after Gravel explained himself.
"This is the kind of question that is designed precisely to divide us," said Obama -- calling it a "disservice."
It drew loud applause and was in keeping with his broader theme of running a different kind of campaign.
