    My neighbor to the south continues to make wise choices as the latest Rasmussen Poll (8-12) shows Obama leads McCain by 10%, 47% to 37%. When “leaners” are included, it’s Obama 52% to 42%. Oregon has been a state that has voted Democrat the last 5 presidential elections.

    Btw the latest Rasmussen Poll of Washington state gives Obama a 12% lead.The Pacific NW is definitely Obama country. If only the rest of the country was as progressive and forward thinking has we are here.

    I think there will be the big surprise that a whole lot of Obama supporters don't have land lines and are completely cellular.

    They don't even get polled. More good news for Senator Obama... and the nation!

    can we bet on this forum?

    I think Obama will take Oregon and Washington but we could bet on by how many points. and we could bet on swing states and stuff like that.

    I cant think of any way to pay eachother though when we win. It would have to be something in posts. but I like to bet, its fun.

    Of all the states what is the two biggest swing states this time around?

    Well Ohio is always important in the swing of things... :D But this time I think there are at least 3 or 4 additional states that are seriously in play that usually aren't for the Democrats.

    It will be an interesting election night. I bet every House of Politics junkie will be glued to the returns.

    I will be, I might even take a vacation day the following day so I can spend the day reading about who voted what and where.


    Obama or McCain, one thing I hope for is a clear winner by midnight. No recounts or contested states. Just a real clear winner

    Progressive = Socialist

    Forward Thinking = Letting the "Party" think for you

    I can promise you NOT ONE BOT will respond with things they like about his policy. It will all be flowery rhetoric - regurgitated from their bellies full of propaganda - and/or McCain bashing.

    So Popeye.... Pick ANY ONE of those and defend it as being good for America based on the SPECIFICS being offered in his flowery rhetoric.

    How much do you value Free Speech? Enough that you would defend my right to say something you don't agree with? I would defend yours...

    I don't have much "Hope" that you would,
    I don't "Believe" the Left wants to protect my rights,
    I don't want the "Change" Obama is peddling...

    Kudo's to you though... for making it through an entire post without bashing McCain or Bush.
