    No wonder McCain told Fox News today that he might 'suspend' his campaign again. It worked so well the last time.

    Is he going to keep "suspending" his campaign until this bill gets passed so he can take full credit.

    Maybe the Republicans WANTED him to suspend his campaign because he's running it so badly!

    Do you think he may also run out of money as well? He needs to spend alot more to catch up right? Also he doesn't look like he is campaigning as much compared to Obama.

    He suspended his campaign because it would make him look like he's putting the 'country first'. Look how many people fell for it on Sodahead

    Earlier today from Intrade via Huffington Post:



    Intrade Prediction Markets

    Update at Intrade has the numbers farther toward Obama:

    Obama: 338
    McCain: 200

    (270 electoral votes needed to win)

    This is possible. Obama ranks in the cash, and even his campaign finance officers said that it will take another $50 million or so to make it to November. A lot of that goes toward TV ads, naturally. McCain is running quite a few himself. Maybe he's about to go broke.

    That would be wonderful if this happened. I also heard that if there are record numbers in urban areas like Cleveland and Dayton, Obama could win Ohio by a decent margin.

    Most people are going to vote for Obama, the question is whether or not their votes will be counted.

    And some that WERE going to be voting for Mccain won't vote at all if it means voting for Obama. I might just be one of them if they don't get their act together..Both sides stink right now

    If you're gonna be a sore loser about it, then yes, you'd be better off not voting at all.

    Not a sore loser at all..I will support him if he gets in but I won't vote for him..and I don't have to agree with him..They are both disappointing..
