before the economic situation the polling hadn't seemingly swung into the Dems favor. the media is making it out to be Palins fault but it is not.
I don't know. Palin's become more and more vicious in her attacks. Plus, she's been thrown out there to solidify and inflame the base, which she's done spectacularly well. But I honestly don't think anybody else cares.

that's the VP's job- to attack, this is something that the Dems don't seem to understand, John Edwards didn't go after Cheney enough inthe debate and it WAS Obama that was taking shots at her after she was named the nominee. Should've been Biden. The pres should look, well, presidential.

the numbers were tight until the stock market crash.
