I hope he has a driver.

He is either angry or under the influence.

Honest question: what difference does it make at this point? It's not like he was going to come out and be all "rah rah" for McCain.

It doesn't carry too much weight but now that it's finally happened it should give him a boost in fundraising and make him appear more legitimate to those who may still have lingering questions.


I made about 500 phone calls tonight to Virginia Democrats and I had this one woman who yelled in my ear a good 2 minutes about her frustration with the Democratic party, its rules, FL and MI, etc. etc., but in the end she said she didn't want a McCain presidency and she hopes Obama wins

The latest polling in Virginia:
Quote:
Obama :45 (+1 from 5/8)
McCain: 44 (-3 from 5/8)
Undecided: 7

US Senate race:
Warner: 60 (+5 from 5/8)
Gilmore: 33 (-4 from 5/8)
That's the second poll to have Obama up (albeit slightly) in Virginia.

Go Warner! He was the speaker at our uni's graduation this year. heh. Could this be one race in which the coattail effect works backwards?

It could very well

The problem is with the polls is that there are a lot of volunteers have become complacent about Warner and feel like not as much needs to be done, but Warner ain't sitting around on his lead, he's out there working hard so I tell volunteers that they need to work hard too It's going to be a big year for us Virginia Democrats.

what's significant about Gore is that, again, we had another 15-20,000 turnout to see BHO getting a rather routine endorsement.

ho-hum. only 15-20,000 people. could anyone else do this? other than U2?

and there seems to be a whopping 11 states in play. who's got the cash to play in all 11?


1. Virginia, 0.2%
2. Missouri, 0.3%
3. Nevada, 0.6%
4. New Hampshire, 1.0%
5. Michigan, 1.5%
6. Ohio, 1.6%
7. Indiana, 1.7%
8. North Carolina, 3.3%
9. North Dakota, 3.8%
10. Florida, 4.0%
11. Montana, 4.5%

and that's just in closeness. NH, MI, and OH are all blue for now. and if you break down the remaining states that like *outside* the 5 point margin, Obama has 252 EV and McCain has 157.

of course, all very early. but interesting stuff:

Obama told the crowd that his former opponent, Sen. Clinton would be “at the forefront of bringing change in America” and joked about their hard fought campaign.

“Of course nobody told me the primary was going to last 15 months, that was a long primary,” he laughed, “I was planning to run for the '08 election, not the 2012 election."
I really will not blame Hillary supporters if they do not pull the lever for Obama.

How many primary elections did Obama outspend Hillary 3-1 to 5-1 and still lose by double digits?



Axelrod and Solis can not cauci their way into the Whitehouse.

Primary and general elections are playing to different voters. You know that. Come on deep, do we really have to give you a crash course in Govt 101?

Oh puhleeze.

Yes, Obama really crossed the line with that one. Boy, what on Earth could he have been thinking, joking about the length of the primary. If I supported Hillary, that would clearly push me over the edge to voting for McCain even though his platform directly opposes Hillary's on many points.

You should be ashamed, Barack Obama. At long last, have you no decency, sir?
