Barack Obama Versus Who? McBush, Bushcain or John McCain - Now It Starts!

The Presidential Primary campaigns are over and the general election has begun between Senator Obama and President Bush now seeking his third term in office. Oops - my mistake. I meant between Senators Obama and McCain but it is hard to find much of a difference between the President and Senator McCain since Senator McCain started to run for the 2008 Presidency.

Senators Obama and McCain had their first joint appearance, though interviewed separately, at Rick Warren's Saddleback Civil Forum On The Presidency last Saturday. Transcript of the event is here and video here.

The 2008 Presidential campaign has started. More election information from a variety of news and opinion sources can be found at Real Clear Politics.

Yes we can what? Solve all our problems by tacking on a few percentage points of income tax to high-earners? This is not a plan.

The word is that McCain did better than BHO at Saddleback.

Why isn't BHO leading by 10+ points at this juncture? I think it's because he's starting to look like something of an empty suit. If McCain had stayed true to 'Straight Talk' and not pandered to the religious right, he'd be doing even better.

It's still relatively early, though.
