Eclectic guest list on Obama-mania

Joel Stein and his mother, Clinton supporter Rosalind Byrd-Leszczuk, were guests on today's "To the Point" episode examining the support for Barack Obama. Others talking with Warren Olney on KCRW included Geoff Elliott, Washington Correspondent of The Australian and James Pethokoukis, assistant managing editor of US News and World Report. Stein's last Op-Ed column for the Times said "Obamaphilia has gotten creepy." Today's show aired at noon, but you can listen here.
