AP reporter says Obama has been campaigning all along

News

Ben Feller, White House correspondent for AP, writes today that even though President Obama technically suspended his campaign to oversea the storm relief, he's been campaigning the whole time:

It may look to America like President Barack Obama is off the campaign trail. He's really not.

By commanding the response to a ferocious October storm a week before the election, Obama is employing a political advantage in the race to be president.

He is the president. ...

[I]n a political sense - and politics are absolutely part of this - Obama has a remarkable last-minute chance to campaign for his job just by doing his job. ...

And, of course, Obama can blow it.
