If Stevens resigns, there will be a special election to replace him. Alaska changed the law after Palin's predecessor appointed his daughter to the Senate. There's already some speculation that Palin will run in that special election. My biggest disappointment is that California's anti-gay Propositi...

The PA number is closer than I'd like, but it's still got Obama over 50%. And at least at this point Obama isn't scheduled to return to PA, so his campaign must be pretty confident.

Kerry won PA by 2.5.

Obama got some good numbers from Missouri today: +3 in Rasmussen and +8 from SurveyUSA. Still, a Missouri victory would probably be padding his victory, not determining it. I thought this quote from Steve Schmidt was interesting: “We need to win Florida, we need to win Ohio. We feel great about our ...

It was mostly more of the same, and I expect the reaction to be pretty much the same as the last one, which means Obama should hold his lead, at the very least. I guess we found out why McCain avoided looking at Obama last time. If he forces himself to acknowledge Obama, he can't hide his contempt. ...
