I assume that it would involve him winning Michigan?

Without MI...



273-265 McCain - This is less plausible (right now) IMO. McCain would have to win CO and WI and I don't see that right now.

Unfortunately I think, without Ohio, Michigan is the most plausible way...



271-267 McCain. The assumption here is that Obama wins OH, CO and IA (he will probably win the last two to begin with). Nevada would have to stay in the McCain column with NH and MI going to McCain.

I think it would have to.  Either that or he'd have to win Pennsylvania which, despite the wishful thinking of Republicans during the primary, appears to have moved into the leans Obama category.

The problem is that Ohio is pretty independent of Iowa, Colorado and New Mexico, all of which seem pretty safe for Obama. So if he loses Ohio, and Obama picks up those 4 states, none of which Kerry carried, it'd take winning Michigan and Pennsylvania to get the magic number. I feel like enough nasty ads against Obama really making him seem out there and threatening to traditional values could swing Michigan and Pennsylvania, but I just don't know if McCain will go for it.

Why do so many people here cheer on war crimes?
Israel and the United States "killing dozens of civilians with explosives", as you phrase it, has, throughout history, almost always been a good thing.

Probably this (273-265):
