    I didn't either. I suspect it means his money is drying up. That could change after tonight if Palin does ok. So I'm not sure it's a death knell there. It doesn't look good, though.

    Yes in deed. My job is almost complete here in Michigan.

    And the electoral votes on MSNBC are now:

    163 McCain

    250 Obama

    125 Toss-Up

    Obama only needs 20 more!!!

    :clap2: Would you take over an economy that is going to collapse? Let's pray :eusa_pray: that Obama won't be the next Hoover.

    There is very little chance of Palin doing well enough to raise McCain any substancial amount of money. Heck, there is little chance that she will even do well.

    I'm frankly not surprised , especially in MI. John McCain didnt have a hope in hell of winning MI. I also think, he did this to concentrate on the red states he is having trouble holding onto that Bush carried in 04. So in one repect jillian is right it is a money thing. I honestly don't think it matters much though, John McCain gave this one away yesterday when he put his yes vote on the "bailout" bill.

    Maybe you would back down from a challenge. I highly doubt McCain is that much of a wuss.

    Yeah, if I planned on being president. I guess it's a good thing he's giving up if he thinks he's not up for the task. Amen to that, he might be, but his sidekick would be a disaster if he kicked the bucket.
