T-minus 28 hours...

Good sign.

All the national polls except for the stupid IBD/TIPP have Obama over 50% nationally.

Gallup's final prediction is 55-44 in favor of Obama, thanks to big leads in all three of their trackers.

And for all you worryworts, the last few Pennsylvania polls look good enough , with Obama drawing the support of 52-53%.

I honestly don't see much to worry about here. The big question is going to be whether he lives up to his apparent leads in Ohio, and whether he can win some of these really close swing states like Florida, North Carolina, and Missouri. But all of that is just icing on the cake, since Obama wins with Colorado or Virginia alone. Winning the presidency seems almost like a foregone conclusion at this point, unless ALL the polls are dramatically, unforgivably wrong. If McCain somehow pulls this out of the bag, lots of people will have some 'splainin to do.

As for myself, I look forward to the coming Republican meltdown. The cracks have already been showing for the past couple weeks, from numerous moderates jumping ship, to vicious infighting within the McCain campaign, to Palin "going rogue", but I think it's just a taste of what is to come. It should be fun.

The Republicans need their 40 years in the wilderness, and after a lot of soul-searching, they just might one day become a viable political party once again.

So to all liberals, progressives, moderates, and otherwise sane individuals of any nationality who read my blog, rejoice! The Bush era is over, and American voters are finally getting wise to the deceptive and divisive politics of Nixon and Rove, which is good news for all of us.
