Nagourney, the Republicans, and race in presidential politics

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

Adam Nagourney writes up a breezy little list of six what-if scenarios that might cause McCain to win the presidency.  None of the points, except perhaps one of them, actually reflects a dynamic currently in play; even if the one might be in play, they are all contingencies that rely on speculation about what might happen.  They sort of fall into the, "if wishes were horses," category.

The NYT is covering the unveiling of a series of ads - focused on John McCain and other Republicans, and their stands on health care. The ads are produced by Health Care for America Now

In an article entitled Ads Criticize McCain, Republicans on Health Care the Times reports:

An independent group is spending more than $4 million to go on the air with a series of television advertisements aimed at Senator John McCain and seven Congressional candidates on the issue of health care.

UPDATE: The truth behind the "$3 million dollar projector"

Watching John McCain stagger and stumble through last night's debate was hard to do.  I found it curious that he seemed stuck on stupid with an "earmarks" rant about Senator Obama having approved money for a "$3 million dollar projector".
