Other Pre-Debate Reading

You've probably heard that McCain is pulling out of Michigan, meaning, in essence, that he's given up on that state and ceding it to Obama. What that means, looking at the electoral map, that the remaining purple states he's hoping to win are not only Ohio and Florida, but some combination of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Minnesota.

Only time will tell how realistic those expectations are (they are purple for a reason). However, word is coming out of Florida that McCain is having trouble there as well; it seems Obama, according to current polls, is pulling away from the polling margin of error.

The pressure, as they say, is mounting...

Of all the possible spin the McCain camp could come up with, this has got to be the most degrading option for everyone involved, from those who are spewing it to the people it is intended to appeal to.

Salon's Mike Madden asks what should've been an obvious question all this time. Guess we're about to find out.
