This amazing campaign

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

This race has not disappointed us who are junkies for presidential politics.  I am not going to review here all the twists and turns the primaries took.  Neither will I rehearse even the surprises that have occurred during this astonishing general election campaign.  But for those of us fascinated with the narrative of presidential politics, yesterday was not a day that let us down, and it is that to which I wish to address myself.

Chilling commentary on the Web this morning

I've been reading a lot of posts on the Internet yesterday and today where people have expressed concern at how McCain and Palin are whipping their supporters into frothy-mouthed hatred of Barack Obama.

Many on our side have had a little heavy breathing recently about Diageo Hotline's numbers, but they are back to a nice six-point Obama lead this morning:

Obama 47
McCain 41

The numbers on Tuesday were 46-44 and yesterday, 45-44.

Psssst. Do something: Send out this video on McCain's rage

I love Brave New Pac.  They have been putting out a lot of great You Tube videos this season on the premise that if we send them to everyone we know, we can make a real impact on how the race turns out.  Among their great hits are Former POW on How McCain is Unfit to Lead, John McCain's Ads are Lies, and McCain is 72. He's had cancer 4 times.

They have a great new video just out.  They are asking you to send it to all of your friends and ask them to pass it along.  The title of the film is, "John McCain's Rage is a National Security Concern."

E. J. Dionne gets it

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

One of the things that struck me both during the last debate and the one that took place last evening is how different are the two men in their styles of leadership. Offering in a concise way this morning in The Washington Post in his reflections about last night's debate an idea that occurred to me both last evening and a week ago, E. J. Dionne summed up the difference between the two men:

McCain sounded like a legislator, Obama like a president.

The four daily trackers have come in

Rasmussen reports the same eight point race he saw yesterday:

Obama 52
McCain 44

Rasmussen sees the race as essentially frozen for nearly the last two weeks.  He observes:

This is the second straight day that Obama has led by eight percentage points, his largest lead of the year. For the past twelve days, Obama's support has ranged from 50% to 52% while McCain has been at 44% of 45% every day.

Research 2000/Daily Kos likewise essentially sees the race as static, with Obama where he has been for the prior three days and McCain rising one point from 40 yesterday to 41 today:

Obama 52
McCain 41

Rasmussen and R2K This Morning: Obama at 52%

Wowzer.  For the first time, Rasmussen pegs Obama's support at 52% and now matches what Research 2000/Daily Kos has been saying for a few days:

Obama 52
McCain 44

Perhaps even better is Rasmussen's comment:

This is the highest level of support ever recorded for Obama and is his largest lead of the year. It also continues a remarkable twenty-five days in a row where the Democrat's support has never declined by even a single point.

On the road with Sarah Palin in Omaha

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

On Saturday night, there were reports not just that Obama was making a major play for the one electoral vote that comes with a victory in Nebraska's second congressional district, but that this move sufficiently concerned the McCain campaign that they decided to send Sarah Palin to Omaha to do a rally there.  Well, guess what?  Sarah denies that she went to Omaha to shore up flagging support.

Karl Rove has published an updated map of the Electoral College which shows Obama over the erratic John McCain in the Electoral College 273 to 163.  His map shows 102 electoral votes in toss-up states.  Of course, it take 270 electoral votes to become president.
