EV 8/3: Keeping it close

Most others do not show it so tight, but I'm going to be consistent and keep states that are polling the candidates within one percentage point in the gray.

John Heilemann has a good piece in New York Magazine about John McCain's strategy. It is to run a campaign attacking Barack Obama personally as too young, too elite, and too pampered to be President as opposed to attacking Obama's ideas and also as opposed to promoting McCain's ideas are something the country really needs. A variety of ads have already surfaced in this vein. More will follow. The irony, of course, is Obama was raised by a single mother whereas McCain is the son and grandson of admirals and married a woman worth an estimated $100 million.

McCain, for all his slime-smearing this past week, still cannot win.
