My post wasn't specifically comparing McCain and Obama, I was sort of going off on a tangent and just responding theoretically to the very last part of breakz' post "what makes for a good candidate anyway?". If anything, my post could be read as a statement that I don't...

I don't see how we can put much trust in these polls/projections at all. Even before Palin, I believed Obama's positives were exaggerated to a statisticantly significant degree because of some voters' reluctance to speak candidly about their objections to Obama.

I will happily ferret anything you guys want to see...

So I'm easy to get along with, I kept using that exact phrase and referenced it when other people starting to pile on. It's an easy point to stipulate to, as it in no way changed my belief/position, that people tend to forget shit from high school. All my...
