Obama and McCain in Dead Heat

AmericaBlog is officially freaking out.

Why people should be worried about the polls

While some here think everything is going just fine, and that Obama has a secret plan lying in wait, I ask you to think back a year ago. Imagine if someone had told you that the most charismatic Democratic speaker in a decade would be in a dead-heat with a Republican has-been corrupt waffler – you would have laughed in their face. After eight years of George Bush? No way, people are fed up – that’ll never happen.

Doesn’t he mean the most charismatic “black Democrat Speaker” in a decade? The fact that Obama is a black man is a factor in this race. The fact that he has a real shot at this is amazing. A year ago people that I knew predicted that Hillary would win the nomination and that McCain would beat her in the general. So, yes, I knew people that not only didn’t think Obama could win a general election, they didn’t think he could win the democrat primary. And who is saying Obama has a secret plan? Is he referring to DDay’s post about Obama’s “ground attack”?

This race is a dead heat and is up for grabs both in the national polls as well as in key states like Ohio, Florida, Missouri, etc. Face reality folks – something isn’t working.

Let’s see, a well known war hero called “The Maverick” who has been adored by the media and independents for thirty plus years, vs. a black man with a Muslim name that hasn’t been in politics for half as many years as his opponent — AND THEY’RE IN A DEAD HEAT!

I can live with that.
