Is it just me or have you noticed that each time it seems McCain might gain a little traction, something out of his control comes by and knocks him off message and Obama gains in the poll. Remember Sarah Palin and the boost she gave McCain after the GOP convention right? What happened after that? Just as they were about to celebrate with Lipsticks and Pigs, the financial crisis descended upon us. I haven't kept a record, but it seems each debate night, the stock market plunges like 700 points taking McCain numbers with him. Today was no different, the stocks market fell like 733 points. What was on the minds of voters tonight was not petty politics of the past like Ayers and ACORN, what was on the mind of Joe Plumber and the rest of Americans were the economy, employment, education, healthcare and other important issues. The only one who seemed to "feel the pain" of the American people was a guy nobody thought had much of a chance when he announced his candidacy in February of 2007. I am one of those that believes in the destiny of America, I am not the most religious or superstitious person, but I am convinced that some force out there has looked at America in the past 8 years and decided we deserve better, the world deserves a better America. To that effect those powers are very bent on making Obama the next President of the United States.
P.S. I ll get a round up of the news and pundit reaction to Wednesday night's final debate tomorrow.
