Lead over McCain is where it should be: 9 points
I expect this race to open up at some point to a gigantic Obama lead. It will be hard to impossible to sustain it over the course of months but it is overdue. Barack Obama is a better candidate, running in a Democratic year, with the advantage of youth and the novelty of being an African American. The last is definitely a net plus in 2008. His most difficult hurdle was Hillary Clinton. When she chose not to go "scortched earth" and allow the contest to be a normal one decided by the voters, then Hillary was choosing to lose. McCain seems inclined to fight much harder than Hillary but he is fighting an unwinnable war. I predict by the end of the Democratic Convention:
making the word "liberal" safe again!
