(CNN) - Barack Obama held a campaign rally in Cleveland, Ohio earlier Sunday during which he said he's starting to feel good about his prospects on Election Day.

"I have to tell you the last couple of days I’ve just been feeling good," he said. "And part of the reason that I’m feeling good is because sometimes it’s, sometimes it’s lonely on the road but when you’ve got a wife like Michelle Obama – when you’ve got daughters like Malia and Sasha Obama and when they are with you on the road boy everything look a little better. The crowds seem to grow, and everybody’s got a smile on their face and you start, you start thinking that maybe we might be able to win an election on November 4th."

(CNN) - Barack Obama held a campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio earlier Sunday, during which he took aim at Vice President Dick Cheney's recent praise of the GOP ticket.

"George Bush may be in an undisclosed location, but Dick Cheney’s out there on the campaign trail because he’d be delighted to pass the baton to John McCain," Obama said. "He knows that with John McCain you get a twofer: George Bush’s economic policy and Dick Cheney’s foreign policy – but that’s a risk we cannot afford to take. It’s time for change, and that’s why I’m running for President of the United States."

"I want to repeat to you one more time, my friends - we're going to win, and we're going to bring real change to Washington," he said at a rally in Wallingford, Pennsylvania.

"With your help, we can win. ... We need a new direction, and we have to fight for it," McCain said, urging voters to volunteer in the final hours of campaigning.

"Two days, two days to victory," he said to roaring applause.

(CNN) - John McCain held a campaign rally in Miami earlier Wednesday with Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.

"My opponent's massive new tax increase is exactly the wrong approach in an economic slowdown," he said. "The answer to a slowing economy is not higher taxes, but that is exactly what is going to happen when the Democrats have total control of Washington. We can't let that happen. We need pro-growth and pro-jobs economic policies, not pro-government spending programs paid for with higher taxes."

(CNN) – Barack Obama held a campaign event in Harrisburg, Virginia this earlier Tuesday, during which he continued to deliver his "closing argument" speech.

"In one week, you can put an end to the politics that would divide a nation just to win an election; that tries to pit region against region, city against town, Republican against Democrat; that asks us to fear at a time when we need hope," Obama said.
