McCain and Obama basically tied

At our son's game a local politically savvy parent spoke confidently of Obama's victory.

Bad idea.

Polls this weekend give Obama only a 3% lead. That's as good as being behind in this race given what lies ahead ...

... the really corrupt and vicious part of McCain's effort only comes now because it's only in the last couple weeks that you can pull stuff that the press won't get to call you on before election day -- after which it doesn't matter. Will it take Obama down? So far McCain's gutter campaign has hurt him more than helped. But there's no reason to be sure it will continue that way. And many Obama supporters, sure the election is basically wrapped up, appear ready to slack in the stretch and let McCain smear and cheat his way into office.
I've said all along that I expect McCain/Palin to win. Within six months it will become apparent that McCain has a dementing condition, and we'll have President Palin.

Everyone who doesn't want President Palin has to fight mightily. Don't pretend it can't happen, it probably will. You'll want to say you did your best ...
