For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: End of Democrat presidential nomination process nowhere in sight:
- Re-vote in Florida appears unlikely
- Do-over possible in Michigan
- More televised debates being planned
- Superdelegates breaking for Obama
The general election polls now show McCain in a virtual tie with whichever Democrat wins. Pollsters Scott Rasmussen and John Zogby told radio host Sean Hannity on Thursday that the battle between Barack and Hillary appears to be hurting them both, and helping McCain. They also stated that this is beginning to impact things at the state level, inasmuch as there are now blue swing states that could turn red in November, a virtual diametric shift in the last two months. With this fight now likely to go into August, and destined to get nastier with more dirt coming out about both Democrat candidates, isn't McCain in the catbird seat? Doesn't this change all the conventional wisdom being espoused about this election months ago?
