A Tale Of Two Races

John McCain gave an impressive and optimistic victory speech, contrasting Democrats who want to refight the decision to go to war on Iraq with his own record of revising a losing war strategy. He jabbed them for advocating that we “abrogate” trade agreements. Despite a broken teleprompter, he was sunnier than usual and on message. 

Meanwhile, the Democrats are locked in close fights, which may turn even nastier. Fox News reports that there is quite a bit of gamesmanship in Ohio. The Obama team found a judge in Cuyahoga County to extend voting hours in selected precincts without much evidence of voting difficulties. According the the Clinton team, these precincts were pro-Obama locales with a large African American electorate. Meanwhile, she has pulled even in Texas riding the wave of late deciding voters, 66% of whom went for her.
