Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

God damn, I never thought I'd say this being such a numbers junkie, but could the news orgs please chill out on the polls today?  There have been, like, three hundred national polls since this morning.  Two polls in the last five minutes from McClatchy/Ipsos and LAT/Bloomberg, both with Obama up nine.  And now CBS is teasing a new one to come out at 6.30 that will show 90% or more of the country believes we're on the "Wrong Track".

And a 14-point lead in the CBS/NYT poll -- O53-39M.  Almost undoubtedly off the mark, but very pretty and certainly lends credibility, along with other polls out today, to the idea that Obama is headed for a double-digit lead.

At some point Obama has to peak, and then the MSM narrative will become "McCain makes a comeback!" However the longer we can put off that evil day, the less credibility that narrative will have.

I'm waiting to see if (after a successful last debate) Obama starts re-engaging in Georgia, N. Dakota and places like Oregon where he can help a Dem senate candidate.  That will be the clearest indication that the campaign is no longer about achieving a tight victory in swing states, and has become a campaign to achieve a national mandate and infrastructure for the years to come.

Vote McCain for war without gain
