When unique visitors to crashes through 125,000 on a single day, I know the public is engaged.

That's what happened yesterday, and my guess is that traffic was also off the charts.

Election days usually see such spikes as information junkies hunt for bits and pieces of intel.

And yesterday's numbers were no doubt helped along by lefties eager to read my interviews with Mark Halperin of ABC News. (Interview one here and interview two here.) Halperin and co-author John Harris have written a book, The Way to Win: Taking the White House in 2008, and was eager to promote it while talking politics with me. We disagreed sharply on many issues though the long conversation was for the most part very civil, and the left was as a result feverish beyond belief and fired with rage against Halperin. Generated a lot of traffic too.

But that doesn’t explain the Wednesday surge. The surge was Kerry's doing.
