Tale of two campaigns on Gray Lady front page.
“His speeches are noticeably crisper, his poise is more consistent…”
“He has narrowed his focus to a micro-level in Iowa, calling county sheriffs, local officials and prospective precinct captains when he passes through town.”
Obama: “Whoever wins this caucus is likely to win the nomination and is likely to win the presidency.”
Also: LA Times does its version of same, but more low-key: “His delivery is crisper, his footing more assured.”
