Obamanation

Now that he's officially clinched the Democratic nomination for the Presidency, the media hoopla over Barack Obama can REALLY get going: http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/election2008/2008-06-03-clinton-delegates_N.htm. It's going to be very, very difficult for John McCain to beat Obama, and if those persistent rumours that Obama will make Hillary Clinton his Vice-Presidental nominee come to fruition, I think that McCain is toast in November no matter what he does. Look at the numbers now in the so-called battleground states (courtesy of Realclearpolitics):

Pennsylvania
Obama +5.8
Michigan
McCain +3.0
Ohio
Obama +1.3
Wisconsin
Obama +2.0
Iowa
Obama +6.4
Virginia
McCain +1.3
Florida
McCain +8.3

Those are NOT good numbers for the Republican nominee, who absolutely needs Ohio to have a shot at the Presidency. If Hillary Clinton joins the Obama campaign, the Democrats will have pretty much a lock on the female and minority vote.

It's looking like it will be a very, very ugly November for the Republicans.........

And, I fear, for our country. I agree with you that with both of them on the ticket, there is only a slim chance for McCain to win.

Let the Messiah return....
