Obama and McCain – A Genuine Horse Race

Standard

While NPR spoke of Virginia as a battleground state this morning on Morning Edition (ME) while they visited the VA Obama and McCain campaign offices, Matt Towery of InsideAdvantage says Obama isn’t “stalling out” in the Presidential campaign at all; rather, this is a genuine horse race with good, measured momentum for the Obama campaign.

And not only is the South’s Virginia in serious play to go blue, but North Carolina and Georgia too, as much as that concept is consistently poo-poo’d by Republicans.

Towery’s far more interesting, knowledge-based perspective and explaination, as opposed to the not-terribly-with-it rambling of some Joe in a Virginia McCain campaign office (found in the ME story) is here. And yes, political conventions might be awful on TV, but they are a complete blast to attend.

Note to self: dig-up old ’88 conventions photos and scan them. (Yep, that’s how long it’s been since I’ve been to one. Hell, with the Olympics going on then the conventions coming-up right after that, I am feeling woefully like a media left-behind here in the ATL. Whine.)
