The candidates are just going through the motions now because this thing is over and done. I’ll tell you like the revival preacher told me at my home church in July. “Obama’s gonna win. You can shout now.” The electoral college map as represented below is clear. A landslide is brewing and nothing will likely mitigate the damage to the Republican Party.
Senators McCain and Obama are starting to engage fully now without laying too heavy a negative glove on each other. The economy is front and center and it does nothing but help Obama. The longer they discuss it, the more he strengthens his hand. A half-hour in an we still are talking about the economy. McCain isn’t doing anything to change the game. His mild criticisms are neither pointed nor compelling.
