'Defy the Conventional Wisdom,' Obama Urges Democrats

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(CLEVELAND) -- President Obama closed out his heavy campaign schedule with a spirited rally Sunday in the basketball gym at Cleveland State University, begging Democratic voters to turn out to save incumbents, including Ohio Governor Ted Strickland.

"You can defy the conventional wisdom," he shouted. "Don't let anyone tell you your vote doesn't make a difference."

Ohio is also home to John Boehner, the Republican leader of the House who would become speaker and second in the line of succession to the presidency if Republicans win control of the House, as many experts predict.

The White House has announced no formal schedule for the president in the final 36 hours before the polls open Tuesday.
