Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Prepare for Some Tightening

There is no way this race won’t tighten in the next 5 days.  None.   McCain won’t end up with 43 percent of the vote, so he has to move up – whereas Obama has likely hit a bit of a ceiling (but when your ceiling is over 50, that’s not terrible).  

In the meantime the McCain campaign is doing a pretty good job at pushing the comeback narrative, and it helps when hacks like Joe Scarborough pick up that meme and run with it as he did this morning.

Just remember than when Scarborough says there is tightening in places like Virginia, NC, and New Mexico – these are all places that he has earlier proclaimed to be guaranteed for McCain (yes, even New Mexico, because McCain is a “son of the Southwest”).   

Anyhow, he’s an idiot, but it’s an insight into the inevitable “it’s tightening” drama the networks want, and the McCain camp is only too happy to stoke.
