Keep Hope Alive (but)

I'm hoping the presidential debate helps Obama's chances even more, but I've got a feeling it's gonna take a miracle for him to win the election. After 8 years of the Bush follies and especially the events of last week, THE RACE IS STILL TIGHT. Why? People don't vote on the issues or even for their own best interests. They vote against what they fear and/or hate. And with the GOP peddling a war hero and a hockey mom--each with a respective laundry list of reasons why they are unfit to govern this country--the "I'd like to drink a beer with them" mentality that got us in this mess seems like it will take over once again.

Add to that, the new Stanford University poll that finds that one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks — many calling them "lazy," "violent," responsible for their own troubles. Yes, you read right: Democrats. And since Obama can't win without them...
