    In case you didn't notice, the DOW has been dipping below 8000 at times today.  I tend to think that this is not going to be the centerpiece of any campaign.

    Those people who will vote for McCain based on gay marriage were already going to.  This decision doesn't change a single thing.

      Many low info voters like Dems on Economics, hate their "morally corrupt social agenda".  They can be pulled to one side or the other depending on the hot-button issues.  I'm talking congressional seats in GA.  I'm talking senate seats in NC.  UNless you don't care if we can actually do anything, once O'bama is in office. Which would we rather focus on weeks before elections?

        My answer remains the same.  The economy is down.  The DOW is flirting with the 7000s.  This is not 2004.  This is not what we'll be talking about in the next month.  It's one thing to say people will focus on social issues when they're doing alright.  It's another to baldly assert they'll focus on them when they're losing their jobs, their houses, their retirement, etc.

        that Connecticut forever have marriage equality than that the Democrats gain a single extra seat in the House from Georgia who will likely flip back to the Republicans anyway within five years.
