Obama vs. McCain

OBAMA vs. McCAIN….According to a Washington Post poll, Obama remains ahead of McCain:

The new survey shows Obama running ahead of McCain by 48 percent to 42 percent among all adults. Among registered voters, the margin is essentially the same — 49 percent to 45 percent. At this point four years ago, Democratic Sen. John F. Kerry held identical leads over President Bush among all adults and among registered voters.

But Obama isn’t Kerry and 2008 isn’t 2004. I don’t think we’ll the same kind of endgame fade that we saw in the last election. On the other hand, Republicans are still Republicans and there’s almost certainly some kind of loathsome swift boating awaiting us down the road. I can’t wait to see what they come up with this time.
