Things Looking Up For McCain

with 2 comments

The McCain campaign garnered the coveted Cheney endorsement.

With the election coming up on Tuesday, the McCain campaign has gotten into high gear.  This has been an excellent day for team McCain.  Not only did Sarah Palin show her ability to cooly and calmly show her ability to handle a foreign leader when a couple of Canadian disk jockeys tricked her into thinking she was talking to the French Prime Minister, but John McCain also wrapped up the key endorsement of Vice-President Dick Cheney.  No wonder the race is tightening.

Cheney was effusive in his praise saying “the right leader for this moment in history is Senator John McCain”.  The amazing thing is with an already huge 24% lead in Wyoming, McCain may beat Obama by 30% in the “Equality State”.   Cheney’s support also helps to butress McCain against any fallout from Colin Powell’s endorsement of Obama.

Palin may have shown a little inexperience in taking the prank phone call, but I really don’t think she had any way to know that French Prime Minister Sarkozy is not fluent in English or that Stephen Harper was the Prime Minister of Canada.  In the end what matters is she was calm and gracious when she thought she was on the phone with a foreign leader.

Also of note is the Zogby poll which showed a  48% to 47% lead by McCain in polling on Friday.  Things have gotten so bad for the Obama campaign that according to McCain adviser Rick Davis, “Obama is campaigning in red states because he’s doing so poorly in the battlegrounds”.
