Election Thoughts

Did Joe Biden deliver a post election victory speech early? It would seem to me that warning (lowering the expectations?) people about enemies generating a crisis to test the mettle of an Obama Presidency should come only after the office is secured.

Follow up questions for Joe:

1. Does he think Obama is ready to be President? He might need to be reminded of his opinion expressed during the primaries.

2. Could these future crises he speaks of be averted by electing McCain instead?

3. Shouldn't we be sticking with Bush's plan for Iraq in the same way he asks us to stick with Obama during the 'Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?' periods?

Other elections thoughts:

I'm interested in seeing how the actual election results compare to all the polling data that is being collected. I'm not sold on the inevitability of an Obama victory but I also don't find his current polling lead unbelievable.

Obama might just be able to coast to victory in this election but he is planning on some major network air time to further his chances. While he is good at delivering speeches, he also is capable of making mistakes. It is possible he could deliver what he considers to be a positive message that winds up turning people off. Sometimes a campaign ad works for well for both opposing candidates. I think the video of children singing for Obama was something that could have worked well for McCain.
