Specifically, on Tuesday, the fifth anniversary of Obama's forceful speech opposing the war in Iraq, a day on which another campaign reportedly wanted to gum-up the substantive coverage by releasing her fundraising totals, Obama dominated local press in Iowa and even managed to get stories in other early primary states on issues he was discussing on the trail.

Update: Jeff Nussbaum and Kenny Baer dissect different forms of political attack here. I think this would qualify as Defcon 5.
