I worked in cancer research for 3 years before turning to the dark side. I don't like discussing odds there, something a bit morbid about it.

But a man with recurrent melanoma at his age - you have to understand that these things can pop up virtually overnight, particularly any lymph node spread.

And it has nothing to do with how healthy the individual otherwise is.

As I said, I always found these odds to be morbid. Because if it strikes you, it doesn't matter that it avoided 90% of other people.

Harry have you watched Cafferty read out his e-mails and the comments on his blog today?

He said he was surprised that it was mostly negative.

Seems like a lot of Hillary voters, older pro-choice women offended that McCain thinks they are so stupid. A lot of the commentary ran along the lines of "Hillary didn't put 18 million cracks in the ceiling for this unaccomplished pro-life, gun-toting Creationist woman to ride her coat-tails." Maybe harsh, but then I feel a lot of this crowd has been harsh for most of the primary.

If McCain is smart, he knows these women won't and can't be won over. If he thinks they're ripe for the picking, think again.

Are you agreeing with the 1 in 10 odds?

What are those odds referring to, specifically?

I think at the very top of the list for many women is sexism.

The kind of sexism that Chris Matthews throws around and even the shrill commentary by Keith Oberman attacking Hillary a few weeks back that so many of Obama supporters thought was so right on !!!!!

Regardless of pro-choice or pro-life, a woman lake Palin is a success story against sexism. And yes, women over a certain age be affected by her selection.

The need for Palin to assume the Presidency.

If you think that the feminists of the 60s and 70s who were so touched by Hillary personally are going to vote for a woman who wants to get rid of abortions even in cases of incest and rape, then I will say I think you've never been this wrong on this board.

yolland is right - this is not the crowd that can or will be won over. I don't even think McCain is so stupid that he thinks it to be the case.

Now STING will bring up Reagan Democrats - this is not who I'm talking about. I'm talking about the hardcore feminist crowd standing behind Hillary.

why wouldn't he think that Palin and HRC are the same as well?
Where did that come from?

Didn't help Mondale too much.

But hey--what about the prospect of all those disgruntled male Hillary supporters drooling over this moose-shootin', hook-baitin' babe? You know how bullheaded and irrational those types can be when their hormones get drawn into it...

A couple of days ago STING was saying that McCain would be better off with Ridge because he needed to get the independents and the moderates.

All day today we've heard about evangelicals celebrating this ultra-social-conservative woman. I wonder if McCain will try to tone that down a bit because hearing how super duper fired up the extreme religious right is can't possibly be reassuring to moderates in any way.
