The makers of American TV show Sesame Street have asked that the Obama campaign stop using a political advert which features the character Big Bird.
Sesame Worskshop, formerly known as the Children's Television Workshop, issued the following statement:
"Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down."
Momentum. It's what Obama had and what Romney took away from him at the first Presidential debate in Colorado.
Unless the Democrats can halt Mitt Romney's remarkable surge then President Obama will be facing the political abyss.
Has President Obama halted the Mitt Romney charge? Has the Republican surge in the polls begun to dissipate?
