    Political guru Charlie Cook says there are six factors pointing to an Obama win in two weeks. In fact he seems to feel the only question is by how much

    1. No candidate this far back two weeks out has ever won.
    2. Early voting is going strong and even if something big happens, those votes are already cast.
    3. The Democrats have a 10% advantage in party registration; in 2004 it was even.
    4. Obama is outspending McCain 4 to 1 in many states.
    5. There is no evidence for the so-called Bradley effect in the past 15 years.
    6. Obama is safe in all the Kerry states and ahead in half a dozen states Bush won.
