      but for now and into the foreseeable future ... yes.

      Enthusiasm is a fine thing, but some folks are just plain delusional.

    •  Obama needs to watch his back (1+ / 0-)

      The states which may come in to play are much more likely to be the ones that any Dem should carry with ease.  Obama has a lot more to worry about in NJ and CT, for example, than McCain does TX.

      As I see it, Obama doesn't stand a chance, unless some of those Red states decide to send electors on the basis of a caucus :-)

      Following super Tuesday, where he showed cross-over appeal, his primary wins were pretty much based on caucus wins (unrepresentative of a general electorate) and states with lots of Black voters (over-represented in a Dem primary compared to the general electorate) who voted for him at a 90% clip.  Blame it on whomever you want, but he has not been viewed as the same candidate he was in Jan and unless he can get his groove back he's a goner.

      His problem is illustrated by primary wins in OK and MS, for example (which helps to get a nomination), but where he has no chance of winning in Nov.  His performance in battleground states was disappointing each and every time (OH, FL, PA).
