    Yes, but I think McCain did well with men. I'm not too disappointed with Obama's debate performance, despite the first half-hour.

He also seemed to grow more tired over the course of the debate."""""

    I couldn't be more proud of how Obama handled the debate last night, and it gives me even more confidence that he can handle the job of the Presidency. He was calm and collected during the lame mudslinging allegations made by McCain. He addressed those allegations well, and then he got back to the issues, while McCain repeatedly(and rather frustrated looking) kept bringing them up.

    Obama win, McCain fail.

    Don't wanna make this thread go OT but I was wondering what my fellow BO supporters are planning to do election day and night? For me, since I'm on the other side of the world, it'll be morning by the time the results are fully in (probably around 10-12 on Wednesday morning), but I'll be following all day Tuesday, anxiously!

    It's hard to do much outside of the United States so I'll probably watch tons of CNN, come on MKF, do some read up online and also on CNN. I must say CNN has really pleased me with all their coverage this election year. I love "The Campaign Trail" with Jonathan Mann and also Wolf Blitzer's show.

    Michelle2006,
    I'll be working to GOTV (get out the vote) in my assigned area, knocking on doors and driving around with my homemade 'VOTE' car sign. Since I registered 26 of my neighbors, and they are new voters, I want to make sure they don't forget where to vote.
    Truthfully, it may not be a really late night unless the polls are totally wrong (don't think so). It is starting to look like a landslide for Obama.

    Thanks Krista, I couldn't have said it better. McCain came off as a grumpy old man while Obama remained cool and collected, as if he was channeling MK during competition. I feel McCain was undergoing a meltdown after the first 30 minutes. There were too many points where he was caught rolling his eyes and huffing and puffing, as if the big bad wolf was about to blow the place down. It was very unpleasant I thought and not the type of temperament we need in the White House. We need a leader who can be a team player as well and that means working well with others and being able to handle many different personalities without losing your cool!

    I am going to be volunteering at the polls that day. I don't know exactly what I'll be doing that day, but I'll be there.

    Embarassed yet?

    Article on Obama's "Arab" background.

    The Little Lie, and How It Grew
    McCain that she fears Democratic candidate Barack Obama because "he's an Arab." McCain replied that, no, Obama's no Arab at all, but a "decent family man" (implying that the two depictions are mutually exclusive).

    To me, the more intriguing element of this bizarre exchange was the word "Arab," rather than the more common Obama epithets, "Muslim," "terrorist" and "Osama." Mrs. Quinnell's "Arab" formulation was just enough off-key to make me wonder where she picked it up. In a subsequent YouTube video, Mrs. Quinnell helpfully elaborated, explaining that she possesses pages and pages of corroboration, plumbed from the Shakopee Public Library. Since it's unlikely that there's much info on Obama's ethnicity in the Shakopee stacks, I figured what Gayle had done was surf the Web.

    So I decided to try tracing her steps. It wasn't hard. No matter where I landed after Googling "obama, arab," I inevitably returned to the same damning quote. It goes: "Mr. Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side. He is 43.75% Arabic, and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side." Also: "Obama is not legally African-American. It is impossible for him to be, in truth, America's first African-American president."

    Holy Leopold's ghost, Batman!

    As I continued searching, I unearthed this shocker, verbatim, on a dozen websites, including Yahoo!Answers. I found it cited by conservative superstars Rush Limbaugh, Monica Crowley and Laura Ingraham. Every repetition of this statistical proof that Barack Obama is "legally" Arab-American circles back to a Web blogger named Kenneth E. Lamb, a self-described journalist who claims a career of "writing and researching" for such august media outlets as the New York Times, the Miami Herald, the Pentecostal Herald and the Jewish Information Network.

    Lamb's indictment of Obama the Mock-Negro is threefold. First, Lamb notes, Barack Hussein Obama must be an Arab because his full name is Arabic. Second, "Kenyan government" records, according to Lamb, have listed Obama's father, Barack Obama, Sr., as "Arab-African." Third, Lamb states that Barack is "descended from Arab slave traders" who resided in southern Sudan (an Arab-dominated state) until at least the 19th century, before emigrating to Kenya.

    Lamb says that he discovered this "devastating truth" in research for "... a NY daily of international reputation. It wasn't what I thought I'd find. I documented it, presented it to the Washington Bureau Chief, but was hardly surprised that it never saw ink..."

    The above statement represents the sum total of Lamb's documentation. There are no footnotes, no genealogical lists, no weblink to the "Kenyan government." There is no proof of Lamb's assertion that every male ancestor of Barack Obama has an Arabic name. For all this "information," the only Web source - for poor gullible Gayle Quinnell, as well as Limbaugh, Crowley and Ingraham - is Ken Lamb.

    However, by delving into the Web beyond the point where Mrs. Quinnell hung up her mouse, I learned a few things about Obama's lineage. First, yes, his mom was white. Second, according to Wikipedia and Britannica, Barack Obama's African half originates in the Luo tribe, who fled their roots in Sudan, bound for Kenya, in roughly 1500 A.D. The Luo - who are black as the ace of spades - have no blood connection to the Arabs who invaded Sudan about 500 years ago. Until the early 20th century, Luos got by with only one name. Under British colonial rule, they were forced to take a family name. So Barack Obama's grandfather, Onyango, simply combined his name with his father's, relabeling himself Onyango Obama. Both names, by the way - according to Ethnologue.com - are Luo, not Arabic. Obama means "slightly bent."

    The point where Ken Lamb probably got lost was where Onyango moved to Zanzibar for while, and was lured away from Christianity by some unknown Muslim spellbinder. According to several sources, the Obama clan was Christian - as are 90 percent of Luos - until Barack's grandddad went all Islamic and added another name! According to About.com, the Chicago Sun-Times and Barack's autobiography, Onyango not only decided to call himself Hussein ("the good") Onyango Obama, he decided to hang an Arabic name on his son, Barack Hussein Obama ("blessings on the good, slightly bent"). This Arabic-naming tradition among the Obamas didn't last long. The current Barack Obama named his daughters Malia (a Hawaiian word meaning "maybe," according to Think Baby Names.com) and Natasha (see "Rocky and Bullwinkle").

    Wow, Madison, you're a rock star registering 26 new voters! Awesome.

    Michelle2006, I took that day off from work to volunteer all day for GOTV efforts. I'll then probably attend a results watch party at my local Obama headquarters. I'm going to vote early next week.

    Republicans launch wave of calls attacking Obama
    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...tacking-obama/

    Some people have little class and not much brain power. After all the negative response to McSame's miserable campaign, they decide to go even more negative.

    I definitely think this is done to demoralize the voter, and attempt to make them stay home and not vote. He can't think he has a chance of beating Obama at this stage unless people don't vote, and/or we have a repeat of the dirty tricks in Florida and Ohio.

    And yet the self proclaimed innocent McCain is "that one" who insisted that Obama is being too negative with his ad campaign at the final televised debate. I laughed out loud so hard at that hypocritical statement Wednesday night, as if he and Palin have been playing a fair game with kiddie gloves. Theirs has to be the worst smear campaign I can recall in recent years and FAR MORE damaging than ANYTHING I've seen from Obama/Biden. McSame is a mcstake(mistake ) for the White House.

    Unprecedented turnout in North Carolina. Yesterday was the first day of early voting in NC and over 100,000 votes were cast! 64% were Democrats, 21% Republicans, and 15% were unaffiliated voters.

    The GOP has held an advantage in mail in ballots, so it is encouraging that the calls by the Obama campaign for early voting is being heeded.

    I know McCain claims that nobody has ever spent as much on negative ads as Obama, and assuming he didn't make that up, the only reason Blinky and Winky haven't spent as much on negative ads is they don't have the money! Never mind that 100% of Blinky/Winky ads are negative.

    Breaking: Obama Demands Special Prosecutor Investigate GOP Voter Fraud Activities
    Charging that the FBI probe of ACORN represents an “unholy alliance” between Republican operatives and potentially illegal conduct by law enforcement targeting voter fraud, the Obama campaign demanded Friday that the U.S. special prosecutor looking into the U.S. attorneys scandal investigate the matter.

    General counsel Bob Bauer sent a letter to Atty. Gen. Michael Mukasey charging that coordinated “misconduct” by McCain campaign representatives and GOP officials were relevant to the special prosecutor’s work, because the activities may relate to the dismissal of seven U.S. attorneys in late 2006.

    The letter requests that the special prosecutor’s inquiry “include a review of any involvement by Justice Dept. and White House officials in supporting the McCain-Palin campaign [and RNC's] systematic development and dissemination of unsupported, spurious allegations of vote fraud.”

    To advance the effort, the Obama campaign convened a conference call with national reporters, though Friday afternoon is not a time that campaigns usually push priority messages.
    Obama and McCain Tax Proposals

    Would Obama’s Plan Be Faster, Fairer, Stronger?

    Why McCain could easily win this
    The projections that are putting battleground states towards Obama shouldn’t be trusted for one important reasons: A huge percentage of people who are telling pollsters that they’re going to vote for Obama don’t realize that they will be turned down at the polls? Why? Because they’ve been purged.
    Jon Bon Jovi slams McCain and Palin campaign
    Though Bon Jovi has his hands full with a $400bn lawsuit, he took the time out this week to condemn the Republican party for their use of his song, Who Says You Can't Go Home.

    The track was played at several recent rallies for Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, according to Reuters.

    "We wrote this song as a thank you to those who have supported us over the past 25 years," Bon Jovi said in a statement. "The song has since become a banner for our home state of New Jersey and the de facto theme song for our partnerships around the country to build homes and rebuild communities."

    In other words, it's unlikely that the enthusiastic Democrat – who hosted a $30,000 per-plate fundraiser for Barack Obama – meant for the song to be played at a Republican rally.

    "We were not asked," Bon Jovi said, "[and] we do not approve of their use of [the song]."

    I don't know, I think 2004 was pretty rough as far as campaigns go. I sometimes think that is in part because of the Swift Boat tactics of 2004 that Americans are more discerning about these tactics. We got fooled in 2004 and ended up with another Bush term, I think many Americans felt that they were duped. So I thank Kerry for that, he beared the brunt of these type of smears in 2004 and maybe made things better for Obama in 2008.

    Terri, 2004 stunk big time!!!!!! I was totally and completely hooked that year. I followed everything, read everything...and the outcome left me in a mini depression for quiet a while.

    I'm so ready for President Barack Obama.

    Yes, people (from both sides) these days are making reference to "getting Swift-Boated" & everyone knows that refers to an untrue/unfair campaign tactic. So, that's one development that does make 2004 more bearable.

    That being said, I have been getting extremely irritated about the constant re-writing of the Joe the Plumber story, with the current version that Obama ruined this guy's life by going up to his house to interview him. And that it is somehow Obama's fault that, after McCain brought Joe's name up in the debate dozens of times, reporters wanted to do a human-interest story on the guy & rather quickly found that he is what a legal, licensed plumber would call a "scab" (operating outside of rules & hurting the business of legit guys).

    The true version is that Obama was talking to people in the street & Joe walked up to the group himself & then asked his question. And, though internet people & reporters have been reporting the "true facts" on Joe, I have yet to hear anyone from the Obama campaign say a word about this guy, other that he would actually pay less taxes under Obama's plan.

    But I keep hearing the McCain supporters say that Obama is "smearing" Joe.
