Current odds are: Intrade 77.6% chance Obama, 21.0% chance McCain Iowa markets: 80.0% chance Obama, 20.0% chance McCain Barring news that Obama killed and ate his mother, its over. In 2000, McCain ran as McCain, and was destroyed by cry-baby Bush and his cronies. The cost to America of that gargantuan mistake is incalculable. Bush is an incompetent nitwit who failed utterly in everything he ever tried to do, and most of all failed as president of the United States. Today, 2008, America was ready for the "real" McCain ... but McCain decided to masquerade as a religious fundamentalist nut. Worse of all he associated himself with an empty headed incompetent who was unprepared for to be mayor of a her two stop-light town, totally over hear head as Governor of a state with the population of backyard anthill, and lost in space as VP. Its like we can't win.
