Did you catch any of Sen. Obama's 30-minute sales pitch tonight? It just wrapped up. His infomercial was nothing like the one for the "Six Second Abs" or "Mighty Putty." We'll be playing chunks of it for you tonight on AC360° and we're keeping him honest.

One media analyst estimates the spot cost the campaign up to $5 million. Was it money well spent?

We'll also take you live to another first for the Obama camp. Tonight former president Bill Clinton will be joining Sen. Obama at a rally in Kissimmee, Florida.

Sure, it's all smiles now between the two men. But, flashback to just a few months ago. That wasn't the case. Tonight, we'll look at the Bill factor in battle for the White House.

Also tonight, don't miss Sen. John McCain on Larry King Live.  We'll also be playing chunks of the one-on-one interview. Does McCain think race will determine who wins on Tuesday? Find out. And, we'll be keeping him honest on his message, as well.

All that and more starting at 10pm ET.
Hope you can join us.

    Missed it, just caught a slice on LKL. Was the audience racially exclusive?

    Senator Obama reassured me that he is the candidate that our country needs for the troubling times at hand. “He will be a President for the people, selected by the people.”

    I didn't catch Obama's 30 minute commercial; I knew 360 would be reporting on it and keeping it honest. Same goes for Larry King except I will probably watch the rerun of that after 360. I'm looking forward to tonight's show and hearing all about the impact or conjectured impact of these two items on the campaign.

    Caught the infomercial and found it inspiring. Not just for what he said but what he didn't say.Not a mention of McCain/Palin. Guess the question is,.. could Mc Cain do a 30 minute ad and refrain from the nasty attacks, half truths and outright lies that seem to be what his campaign has been all about?

    I think Clinton and OBama are doing the right thing. They are showing us that you can disagree and come together on common ground for a better tomorrow. They are two smart men and this childish bashing of each other, will not solve the problems that we are facing right now and in the future. Some of us could learn a lesson from them. ( McCain/Palin) to be exact !!!!!! Palin has more charges filed against her, could someone tell this woman to shut her mouth, and go back to ALASKA!

    I did watch it. If anyone is still undecided, then they haven't been listening. Obama will be a President to be proud of, something we have not had for a long while. I think it was a good idea for Obama to have this 30 minutes, he needed to let people know he is not the ever changing devil the McCainPalin camp touts. He looks, acts and has the intelligence to govern this country for the people, all the people, not just the rich and powerful.
