Did you know there are 600,000 registered AA voters in Florida who did not cast a vote in 2004? Additionally, how many tens of thousands have registered in this last year? This block alone can have a huge, huge impact.

Why do you only treat OH and PA as swing states? What happened to CO, NM, NV? The Latino votes don't matter out there?
Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Iowa, and Missouri going Blue won't matter if the Republicans were to win Pennsylvania.

In Florida, McCain has had the lead in 7 of the last 8 polls by an average of more than 3 points. Intrade Real Time Quotes for Florida are 62% for McCain and 38% for Obama.

In addition, many Florida Democrats are not happy about Obama's resistence to counting their votes.

That's a rather large if.

Well, what was the type of Voter that Obama was unable to pick up in his solid defeat in Pennsylvania earlier this year?

It's interesting that you write off Florida while Obama leads in PA by a much more substantial margin in the polls.

"Poor Judgment"????

I'm afraid that will probably be the minority. We'll have to wait and see how she does at the convention and on the stump.

Poor judgment would have been...Romney (the flip flopping Mormon), Lieberman (The pro-choice traitor), Ridge (the pro-choice too-close-to-Bush cronie), Pawlenty (The...just plain BORING)

What a wretched pool McCain had to choose from.

Those of you who think this pick was some kind of brilliant move are rather funny. She might get the conservative base, which either Romney or Ridge would have done(don' t know much about Pawlenty), but she won't get any significant number of Hilary supporters. They're not that dumb. No matter what fantasies you want to delude yourself with.

The joke, if there is one, is not on us, mate.

But it's not just about getting Hillary supporters. I think she, along with Jindal someday, are the future of conservatism in the United States. She, like McCain, has bucked her own party on occasions and includes in her governing some things that are not typical of Republicans of old, like climate change for example. She is attractive (in more ways than one ) to independents, hopefully weary conservatives, and people tired of the same old Washington BS and want someone (in this case, two people) who are equally tough on both political parties. She is a major reformer, from what I've been reading about her.

I think she was a fantastic selection. Romney was my preference, but Palin was second, and I think she'll do just fine. I think right now conservatives are as excited as they have been in this entire election.

I don't see any indication that McCain takes Pennsyvlania.

How is it that you consider stoneage social values the future? Denying science in schools, forcing raped women to bare child, and agreed with Buchanan when he blamed homosexuals for all America's social ills...

This is the future you want?!

For real. It's beyond belief. It is disheartening to me, as a soon to be 24 year old, to see other young people like myself putting their stock into the right. I'm glad my age group will be voting 95+% for Obama.

She has been starting to have doubts about Obama since he won the nomination, and was totally shocked and impressed by McCain's selection for VP. She thinks it was a really bold move by McCain, and unlike other people has been really impressed with what she has read so far about Sarah Palin. She has not made up her mind yet of who she will vote for in November, but she has really been impressed by McCain's move today.

Obama has weaknesses in Pennsylvania, despite what the latest polls might show. Will find out in a week or two if Palin does anything to impact Pennsylvania or not. Ridge would have been better in taking Pennsylvania, but I can see Obama being vulnerable to McCain in western Pennsylvania with Palin on the ticket.
