She rescheduled to go to Michigan. Makes perfect sense.

RealClearPolitics - Election 2008 - Florida: McCain vs. Obama

Not really. Notice the two polls with a tie - RV's.

Considering WA & OR both have Obama up by only five, I'd be putting some money in there for sure.

...that's too funny~

When I saw the thunderstorm post earlier I almost fell out of my chair!

As I mentioned above, there were storms in Kansas City when McCain and Palin were scheduled to come and they didn't back out, so I think there is more to this than the implied "she doesn't like thunderstorms."

Apparently she needs to stick with towns that only have Wal-marts, and restricted libraries.

You're a little behind. The appearance was never confirmed. Now it is. She'll be speaking at The Villages in central Florida.

Wasting their time in WA and OR. Trust me, I live in Washington.
