I still expect the poll to be tighter once the RNC is over...

there is nothing McSame can to do win this. his issues..well what are his issues..nobody knows...Obama just needs to play it safe rest of the way and in 65 days, he will be the president.

I would'nt be as confident as you are.

I'm cautiously optimistic, but there's still that effect of those who are polled are asked if they would vote for a black man and they say "yes" for fear of being labeled a racist.

I think this effect will come into play come election time.

I think Obama will win, but by a narrow margin.

I was certain Kerry would win back in 04 and he lost....

Agreed Obama is amazing compared to Kerry, but I'd wait a bit more to claim any type of victory.

Yeah, it is looking good for Obama but I have thought a win was certain before only to be crushed by the reality of election night. I'm not counting my chickens yet

Let's see how the RNC goes and if McCain doesn't get much of a bump from it I will be a bit more optimistic

Gustav is going head on towards New Orleans, this may be a very, very harmful event for the city.

McCain's camp said they knew about this incident before McCain picked her as a VP pick.

I still think this will slightly hurt McCain's chances.

The people who are most likely to consider this immaterial are the more liberal voters, ones not likely to vote for McCain anyway. Not sure how the pious right wing will look at this.

Either way, its one more thing to get in the way of the the Repbulicans big party. Gustav has been downgraded which is good but it can still cause damage and its sounds like the they might shorten their convention.

What does suprise me is that McCain knew of this pregnancy when he asked her. Even if it dosen't affect how people vote, the media is the media and will go with this story (not because they are "liberal" but because it sells-that's capitalism folks )

The only argument in which this case could be used for the republicans is the pro-life argument, but that wouldn't add voters to McCain that he already did not have.

Re: DNC, GOP Conventions, Presidential elections + more. Palin's Daughter Pregnant :e

to Joe Liberman. I just want to thank him for supporting McCain. What I caught of his speech (in between watching the Fernando/Roddick match anyway) was dull dull dull. He and Zell Miller can start an exclusive club of Dems recruited by the Republicans. (Zell was a much more exciting speaker though ) Anyway, we can only hope Joe does for McCain what he did for Gore. I'm sure some of his Joementum will have to rub off on John Too bad John wasn't allowed to choose him as his vp though, he may have been the first politcian to run as vp for both parties, but alas

Alright, I'm done with the Joe jokes now...

Lieberman

The Bush Speech was also pretty funny. They also transitioned out of it very quickly.
