McCain has closed what was once a really big gap and its now a dead heat. I personally thought this was going to be a Obama walkover but now, this close to the election, Obama is in trouble. Bush is totally unpopular, Obama is charismatic and a terrific orator but as he has moved more to the right, his message is getting garbled. For an old geezer like McCain to close the gap this quick is amazing. 1 in 5 Hillary supporters have said they will vote for McCain and many of the others simply are going to sit this one out. Barack should win this going away, but his recent centrist statements have alienated the more left leaning Dems. Joe Lieberman may speak at the REPUBLICAN convention, for goodness sake, and is being considered as a possible Veep for McCain. This should be what amounts to a Democratic turkey shoot but now its a horse race.
