LEBANON, Ohio -- During his speech here, John McCain spotted a sign in the crowd. "Hold up that sign," he said, reading it for the benefit of the crowd: "Drill, Baby, Drill!"

The candidate's mention of offshore drilling prompted some in the crowd to shout, "ANWR! ANWR!" McCain has opposed drilling ANWR, which his Alaskan running mate staunchly supports.

If the enthusiasm of this crowd (officially estimated at 5,500) is any indication, the Obama campaign is wasting its resources trying to flip Ohio from red to blue.
