    LOL I know right! This knee jerk reaction is as laughable as the celebrating right after the Dem Convention....

    the real story will begin to crystalize in the next few weeks....

    Obama has lead daily for the last 3+ months and now people are going to freak out over an EXPECTED bounce from the Convention?

    The longer Palin remains hidden with more things coming out about her almost daily the worse it will get for McPain

    I'm surprised the race is even this close, but agree about the bounce. Bob Dole got a 9 pt bounce in 96 that was completely meaningless.

    It is surprising... Especially with the pro-Obama media coverage that McCain is even in the race, let alone leading now.
