        non-RNC "base". All the Dominionist evangelicals, hardline anti-choice, lukewarm to McCain voters were going to show up on election day, or maybe not. Well, now they are paying attention. They have 58 days to dust off their old phone lists, organize, and do their jack-booted best to GOTV on election day.

        Last week, Obama clearly had the best ground game, by a wide margin. Palin cut that advantage down; how much I cannot say. But the best part, as far as McCain is concerned, is that he's gotten a big boost in his ground game for zero dollars out of pocket.

      She is not going to implode, no matter what garbage gets revealed about her.  She has the bulk of the Republican political machine behind her and training her right now.  They will twist any negative about her into a positive.
