    It probably still leans McCain, but not if he ignores it.  That's the big change over the last few months.

      in Florida just yet.  I think Obama has taken advantage of that opportunity, with these visits and the TV ads.

      McCain's waiting for the retirement crowd to return.  And I'm not the first person to say that--Chuck Todd said it last night...

    •  Yes and the good thing Obama does not need FL (0+ / 0-)

      to win. He can win all sorts of other ways. ( see my post below). But it would be great if he won Florida as McCain needs Florida. His paths to 270 are more limited than Obama's.

      The one thing we know about the McCain that they're very good at negative campaigns, they're not so good at governing- Barack Obama

    •  Careful. McCain hasn't spent in Fla yet. & U know (0+ / 0-)

      when he does, he's gonna go negative.

      •  Very true (1+ / 0-)

        But that's why it's good Obama is running ads now. And McCain thought FL would be a lock. So forcing him to spending time and money here is significant for that reason.

      •  By the time McCain visits Florida (0+ / 0-)

        Obama will have made friends with everyone, especially along that "I-something Corridor".

        So, it may not be as easy for McCain to get the support he was assuming he would automatically get down there.

        McCain is striving to be captain of the USS Swiftboat. Obama is striving for President of the United States of America.
