    Doesn't the VP preside over the Senate?

    Doesn't the President nominate Judges?

    Seems simple enough to me.

    In an election like this, polls are meaningless until 2 days before the vote. There are undecideds who are still undecided, whoda guessed? I will grant you that he has a slight edge, but he should be ahead by double digits by this time, I think he has peaked too soon.

    Note to Joe Biden: The words "Vice President" do not apear in Article One of the Constitution. Perhaps you might want to give that plagiarism thing another try.

    I live in the Dallas area and haven't seen a presidential ad on TV in decades. This is one of the reddest states in the nation and it is pointless for either party to waste money in it and yet, on a daily basis, there are McCain ads on TV. When McCain has to spend money defending a state that should be a slam dunk it means the party is over. I don't know by how much Obama should be leading or why you think it should be double digits, you have a higher opinion of him then I, but his lead is solid and Sarah will be back in the frozen tundra in a month...

    And Obama is defending Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Minnesota, the state that stayed blue in '80 when the west and the north-east went red. So what's your point?

    The Vice President is President of the Senate.
