    With less than two weeks to go before the start of the presidential nominating conventions, Barack Obama's lead over John McCain has disappeared.

    Pew's latest survey finds 46% of registered voters saying they favor or lean to the putative Democratic candidate, while 43% back his likely Republican rival.

    In late June, Obama held a comfortable 48%-to-40% margin over McCain, which narrowed in mid-July to 47% to 42%.

    Last night at the McCain gathering in STL, it was announced that McCain is leading my 6 points in Missouri.

    And I saw a lot of the usual GOP conservatives attending. I was afraid they'd abandon him, as many of those active in politics in this area were supporting Romney.

    I wonder if Russia's actions in Georgia might have caused the focus of this presidential campaign to shift a bit.

    It is what it is. I'm a realist.

    I was thinking that too. Obama's numbers have gone down in the past week. Maybe some folks are thinking about the Cold War again.

    I won't vote for the liberal sonofabitch.

    "Not being Obama", which is the ONLY thing he has going for him, is hardly qualifications for being President of the United States and Commander in Chief.

    Like many of us who are not too happy about McCain being the Repub. nominee, you will vote for the sonofabitch because to not do so would enable Obama to win which might put your son in harms way in Iraq.
