    Did John McCain do well enough to win back some red states? Did Obama do well enough to solidify the swing states? Is it possible for an October surprise to change the election? I want to hear your thoughts.

    Reagan was farther ahead at this time in 1980. But I believe that is when the term "October Surprise" was coined.

    RNC Pulls out of Wisconsin, Maine; focuses on red states

    By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press Writer Wed Oct 15, 4:19 PM ET

    WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee is halting presidential ads in Wisconsin and Maine, turning much of its attention to usually Republican states where GOP nominee John McCain shows signs of faltering.

    I really thought tonight was the only debate McCain did well on. This is Obamas ELection and I really think he will win no matter what.

    "The shift in advertising resources suggests that the RNC has decided to focus on defending reliably Republican-voting states against Obama's onslaught of advertising. Flush with money, Obama is outspending the joint efforts of the Republican Party and the McCain campaign by more than 2-1."

    Yes, it's over.

    Without assuming who won or lost the debate, in my opinion, McCain clearly accomplished about all he could and probably did more to help his cause than Obama did to help his.

    That being said, this election is over. I'm sure they're already minting the golden crown to fit Obama's head.

    The question is .. now what?

    Democrats will be in control of the entire government.

    I bet Obama is glad he reneged on that promise to accept public financing if McCain did.
