Well I guess you'll choose to ignore, and attempt to circumvent, the entire point of my post. Colour me surprised.

Carry on.

Apparently we're talking past each other.

"If the November election were held today, McCain would beat Clinton by 46% to 40%, while eking out a 2
point advantage over Obama (44% to 42%), although well within the poll’s margin of error. About one in 10
in both match-ups were undecided and 5% would vote for someone else. McCain and Obama split the
independent voters, while McCain takes that group away from Clinton." Quote from article.
The rest of the article talks about McCain's chances against Clinton and Obama but not suprisingly, Obama seems to more of a threat election wise to McCain winning the Presidency.
Personally, if McCain won the election I would hold a celebration party as the rest of the Democrats on my street looked at me in disgust. Sadly, that will never happen.

I did send a email out that made my girlfriend mad about President Bush beating John Kerry in 2004. She didn't like my pro-Bush talk at the time. =D

You're absolutely right that it does. But, it's only a liability because of all the uninformed people out there who don't know any better.
