Even as he drags the dying, rotting corpse of his administration to its grave, he still doesn't have a handle on what is happening in the our nation. It must be splendid to live in an ivory tower and view the world through rose colored glasses.

Recent polls show that if the choice in November is between Clinton & McCain, Clinton will win. If its Obama vs McCain, it'll be "hanging chad" counting time again.
