I'm not buying any of this Obama tied with McCain in MA stuff.  No Republican has broken 40% here in 20 years.  This is all just noise because the Dem primary is still undecided.  Once the GE campaign starts and they're forced to choose between John "100 years" McCain and Barack "opposed from the start" Obama theses polls will straighten out and it'll be 54-38 for Obama.

If the worst thing Democrats can say about McCain is bring up his "100 years in Iraq" comment, then boy you guys are REALLY screwed.   Anti-war candidates don't win presidential elections. 

This is what happens when DailyKOS liberals take over the Democratic Party:  they push candidates that are unelectable in a general election.   And if the race comes within single digits in MA, Obama is screwed.     



lol, hackery at its best right there.  I suppose Nixon was just a fluke then?  Granted he wasn't as virulently anti-war as Obama but he was still promising an end to a war the American people had grown increasingly frustrated and confused by.

and the 100 years comment isn't the only thing Democrats have on McCain.  With the economy being a huge issue you can also expect him to get hammered on the Bush tax cuts and health care.  Plus they'll be plenty of ads tying McCain to Bush himself who, in case you didn't know, isn't exactly on the best of terms with MA voters.  I'm also fairly confident they're pretty big on abortion rights up there, another thing McCain opposes.  So tell me, what reason do MA voters have to pick McCain over not just Obama but any Democrat?
