While I'm Driving People to the Polls...

The Key Grip will be incommunicado all day, volunteering for the Obama campaign (specifically, driving a van back and forth from the University of Florida to the early voting station downtown). So in lieu of a column this morning, how about we all take a (second?) gander at Barack Obama's thirty minute television program from Wednesday night? It was extremely effective-- probably enough so to give a last late bounce to Obama's numbers.

Meanwhile a new CBS News / New York Times poll says that Sarah Palin is now an unqualified drag on McCain's chances of becoming President (even before releasing those medical records, which still hasn't happened), and state-level polling shows Obama with double-digit leads in Colorado and New Mexico. Lest we forget in all the excitement about places like Missouri, North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Indiana, Barack Obama doesn't need any of the latter group to become President: John Kerry's total from 2004, plus Iowa, New Mexico, and Colorado, adds up to 273 electoral votes.

Don't forget to vote!
