Obama Momentum

Intrade Prediction Markets has Obama up by 33 points over McCain today, but the race is far from over since nobody knows what strange things may happen over the next 32 days until the election.

People are predicating McCain's next Hail Mary campaign stunts at Slate Magazine.

The U.K. Times Online reports that a McCain insider said, a pre-election wedding of Bristol and Levi "..would be fantastic, you'd have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week."

There will be lots of ads but I don't know if those have nearly as much power as the general trend across all media, that McCain is not the right person for the job. It's not over til it's over, and there are a couple of debates to go. I'll wait until late on November 4th or November 5th to either celebrate the beginning of a new era in American politics....or wonder what the heck people were thinking.
