    The best plan the Dems have is to keep showing the "Big Dog" commercials showing Clinton endorcing Obama.

    That's a little optimistic. Nader, whose "effect" is the subject of this thread, garnered only .3% in 2008 in Virginia. Even if his votes had all gone to McCain, Obama would still have won Virginia.

    Hell, even if all four third party candidates' votes had gone to McCain, Obama STILL would have won Virginia.

    Ah. I don't either but I am holding out hope more people this year are sick and tired of the 2 idiots running and will show their distaste for the 2 parties.
