    Yes, I know Morris is for McCain but Morris always gives excellent political analysis:

    The polls now all indicate an Obama win on Nov. 4; some even suggest a landslide. But there’s a strong chance the race will tighten back up this month.

    Anger over the Wall Street mess has been pushing voters to Barack Obama in droves. And John McCain’s effort to get involved in the solution only hurt him.

    By suspending his campaign and heading to Washington, McCain made himself a central actor in the unpopular bailout, and thus a target of populist outrage. It also hurt his his effort to show how he far he is from President Bush - there he was, shoulder to shoulder with Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, Bush and Wall Street.

    But October may see the end of Obama’s surge: He’s peaking too soon.
    Once the Democrat is seen as the clear leader and likely winner, the spotlight will inevitably shift to him. And he may not benefit from the increased attention.

    Remember John Kerry? He was ahead in the polls by 11 points at the exact same time in the 2004 race!

    that is very true...however, there wasn't a financial crisis and we had just gone to war a year earlier. Bush and the Rove machine scared the shit out of people by saying John Kerry was too weak to protect us and we'd all die if they elected him. People believed it...

    Now I think people would rather take their chances with Obama than give the Repubs another 4 years to make things even worse.

    Dick Morris has phenominal political articles. He's one of the best and very fair.

    Most libbie clones hate him because he exposes the left for what they are.
