(Newser) – Barack Obama wrapped up his night of blitzing TV with an upbeat appearance on the Daily Show, the Chicago Tribune writes. "I think we've got a good shot at this thing," he told Jon Stewart last night, downplaying the chances of his race costing him the election. Pundits "have been saying that for a while but we’re still here," he said. "I don’t think white voters have gotten this memo about the Bradley effect."

Obama said the argument that a vote for him would be a vote for socialism seemed pretty thin. "I think they found proof that when I was in kindergarten I shared some toys with my friends, and that's clearly a sign of subversive activity," he quipped.
