Obama's TV ads to go up soon?


First Read can report that the Obama re-election campaign is requesting rates for a potential -- and significant -- TV ad buy.

Caveat: This doesn't mean that we'll soon see the ads; they could end up deciding to wait. But what Team Obama is doing is the first step in putting something on TV.

It's worth noting that - with all of the TV ads from the GOP presidential candidates and their Super PACs (in states like IA, NH, FL) - millions of dollars have already been spent hitting Obama over the airwaves.
