Obama really really really wants to be President.

Obama is getting a little desperate, judging by the fact that he's now advertising in Canada.

An election sign with a difference is making drivers on the Pat Bay Highway wonder if they missed the border.
The red, white and blue billboard proclaims "Obama for President" and underneath, just in case there is confusion, adds "United States of America." The full-size billboard was paid for by Dean Park residents Reg and Karen Mooney with the dual purpose of provoking family debate and putting in a personal push to get troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

I guess there's dumber things to spend your money on, though I can't think of any right now.

    Obviously, this is just an example of the grassroots excitement Obama creates, not an officially sanctioned Obama advertising effort.
