I'm curious if this will change much in the next month or so, as it has been getting crazy of late.

Since I forgot to mention the VP's...

Palin; as others have noted, her complete lack of experience on the national scene and its obvious manifestations thus far.

Biden; normally the king of shoe in mouth disease, has went oddly silent.

Obama -- inexperience; more comfortable with showmanship over substance
McCain -- age and ties to Bush
Biden -- Washington insider and CHAMPION of the war. (makes Obama look hypocritical.)
Palin -- newcomer who was thrashed mercilessly. We haven't been able to get to know her.
