1. The sea trials were HALTED.
2. Anti-submarine ship Admiral Tributs and the rescue vessel Sayany are accompaning the submarine TO AN UNDISCLOSED TEMPORARY BASE.
3. First Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Kolmakov and Navy commander-in-chief, Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky ARE RACING TO SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT for a first hand assessment of the unfolding situation.
Again, the Russian Navy spokesperson is INSISTING that the onboard reactor is SAFE! Then tell us where the accident is, let independent investigator onboard the submarine!

Soviet/Russian Nuclear Submarine Patrols 1981-2006
|The annual number of patrols performed by Russian nuclear-powered submarines has plummeted from 235 in 1984 to less than 10 today. In 2002, the strategic submarine force did not manage to send a single boat on deterrent patrol. (click on graph to download PDF version)|
During the Cold War, the patrol areas for Soviet ballistic missile submarines gradually changed as new capabilities were introduced. Most important was the range of the missile, which permitted the submarines to pull back into patrol areas ("bastions") closer to the Soviet Union.

Winter coming, and citizens inconvenienced because the Secret Service decides their bus stop must be moved! Homeowners not allowed to FREELY drive their cars to and from their homes, park in front of their own houses because of the security risk THAT YOU POSE. Christmas coming, and families cannot have company over for dinner without some MAJOR inconveniences...as example, guests have to park outside of the security zone, walk to the security zone, then be ESCORTED to your home for dinner.
When Bill and Hillary purchased their home in Chappaqua (about eight miles from here) at the end of a culdesack, there were some minor inconveniences, but nothing like what Barack Obama's neighbors are being forced to endure. These neighbors need to get themselves and attorney and seek a TRO against the Secret Service and Barack Obama...their full use and enjoyment of their property is being majorly impacted, and that amounts to a taking without due process of law.
Sorry Obama, but stop SCREWING YOUR NIEGHBORS that live within five blocks of your abode by moving out and selling the house.
When one Frederick K.C. Rice of the Crenshaw Christian Center in Los Angeles said, "We shouldn't do anything to jeopardize the future of our family and our children," he should have perhaps said, "We don't take kindly to faggots, and don't want them having the right to get married." Let us put political correctness aside and call if you will, a spade a spade...it's a well known fact that the black community is prejudice against gays, generally has no toleration for FAGGOTS and QUEERS. It is time to take the Black Communities own prejudices and shove them back in their face publicly...you want and demand equal rights, then you have to be willing to give equal rights, and the time has come for the Black Community to learn some TOLERANCE.

US jobless rate at 14-year high
The US jobless rate rose to 6.5% in October, official figures have shown, the highest rate since March 1994.
Figures from the US Labor Department showed US employers cut 240,000 jobs in October, the 10th month in a row that the economy has lost jobs.
The increase means that in the first 10 months of this year, 1.2 million people in the US have lost their jobs.
Some economists predict the jobless rate could climb to 8%, or possibly higher, next year.
In the 1980-1982 recession, the unemployment rate rose as high as 10.8% before coming down.
The Labor Department said 481,000 people in the US filed new claims for jobless benefits in the last week of October .
On Friday, car giant Ford announced plans for more job cuts after reporting third quarter losses of $129m.
The firm said 2,260 workers in its North American plants would lose their jobs - 10% of its North American salaried work force of 22,600.

Simply stated, if you work for the government, or for one of our elected officials, or you are an elected official, Roll Call GIFTS YOU A MEMBERSHIP! I did some quick CHECKING, and am not finding anyone ADMITTING to these gifts from Roll Call. Correct me if I am wrong here, but aren't elected officials and staffers supposed to DISCLOSE gifts? Even more troubling, seems to me, that giving STAFFERS and ELECTED OFFICIALS free access to Roll Call creates and incestous relationship that gives the Roll Call UNFAIR access to information sources on Capital Hill.
Let us say for example that 10,000 government employees are accessing/using this FREE GIFT. That represents lobbying/favor buying on the part of Roll Call on Capital Hill of $2.75 Million dollars a year. Has the company registered as a lobbyist, reported this lobbying gift to the FEC or other government agency...even more disturbing, are they in any fashion successfully writing this GIFT off of their taxes when they file their IRS reports each year?
A GIFT IS A GIFT, and news sources should not be allowed to GAIN ACCESS OR FAVOR IN THE OFFICES OF POWER THROUGH THE GIFTING OF FREE SUBSCRIPTIONS. I would ask President Obama to instruct his staff NOT TO SUBSCRIBE to Roll Call unless they pay for their subscriptions, and I would further ask that the Inspector General, or perhaps the Attorney General's office open up and investigation of this issue, and if proper pursue charges against Roll Call and other publications that are giving gifts to officials...further, if officials and their staffers have been accepting these gifts, and not REPORTING THEM, charges should be brought against them as well.
I would suggest to Roll Call, that they either CHARGE EVERYONE for internet access to their publication including Washington DC staffers and politicians, or give everyone FREE ACCESS. This article will be followed with a formal letter requesting investigation of this issue. We want change, and change means halting FREEBIES given to elected officials and their staff as a means of BUYING SPECIAL ACCESS....SHAME ON YOU ROLL CALL.
Roll Call is the first and only call for the people, politics and personality of Capitol Hill. Sign up today to get Roll Call delivered to your inbox and/or doorstep.
Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks must be crying up heaven at the hypocrisy of California's Black Community. Marriage is not just between a man and woman, and has NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION OR YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS...marriage is a right, and you either support LEGAL RIGHTS for all, or you are not deserving of the rights you have. Again, it is sad that California's Black Community has forever sullied and stained their greatest moment in history by showing themselves to be nothing more than hypocritical homophobic bigots.
The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America – I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you – we as a people will get there.
BOOM...right after his opening thanks, and promising his kids their dog he starts back peddling on his Audacity of hope, dampening our expectations, and preparing us for reneging on his agenda while also pitching the crowd for a second term. The climb is going to be steep can easily be translated into, "lets tamp down the enthusiasm and be realistic folks, as there is no way in hell we are going to get along if you hold me to all those promises I made out on the trail. Besides, if you recall, I ALWAYS gave myself an out by saying I did not know what we would find when I actually took office." Then the typical political hook while the crowd is on his side, "We may not get there in one year or even one term..." Translated, "Stay with me folks, and keep those monthly campaign donations coming in, as I am running for a second term." Say five million Americans continuing to toss in $20 bucks a month for the next four years, you all do the math.
Talk about politics as usual! Then yesterday after the dust settles America got its first look at Obama's change government, and it looks suspiciously like the same old tired SHIT SANDWICH we have been seeing and forced to eat for years. Cronism, it is there. Political machine mentality with a lot of the same old worn out faces...it is there with the early framework of an Obama presidency taking on a very Clinton like feel as Bill and Senator Dashle's team members are plugged into the mix. Government by and for rich people...OH YEAH, that is there in spades when you start looking at how many MILLIONAIRES are on his payroll, starting with his new Chief of Staff who has had his tens of millions safely tucked away in trust now for almost two decades while sucking off the public trust! Which might explain his pro-illegal stance, since rumors have it that he benefits from the CHEAP LABOR they provide.
Two days in and it is looking like America may have been hoodwinked...I would challenge Obama to step forward and prove me wrong, unless he is nothing more than a two faced lying yellow bellied chicken. Where is change Mr. Obama if you are building your team in the same corrupt fashion that every other president has built his team. Where is change when you are brining in the same rich and elite overlords to rule over the masses? For someone who sold himself as one of us, you are suddenly acting a whole lot LIKE THEM. Is your change just more of the same as the middle class gets chewed up and spit out by the Uber Rich on one side, and both illegal and legal immigrants on the other? Tell me Obama, did you just HOOD WINK AMERICA?

Martin Luther King had a dream and Obama has brought it full circle. On the day he will be sworn into office, it will be the 100th Anniversary of the NAACP.
Rosemont police have taken someone into custody in connection with a possible threat to Barack Obama. The person, whom police did not identify, was taken into custody this afternoon after being pulled over in a car by Rosemont police, Sgt. Keith Kania said.
Police would not say what led to the driver being taken into custody. No charges have been filed. As part of the investigation, Rosemont enlisted the assistance of other law enforecement agencies, Kania said.
He declined further comment, saying it is an ongoing investigation. Check back to http://www.dailyherald.com/ throughout the night for more information
In Other NEWS...
Popular vote is still VERY CLOSE.
CNN has now given Texas to McCain, but we had called that one over an hour ago. The Biltmore is a MORGUE! McCain is at Biltmore staying in the Goldwater suite...how appropriate for Mr. Loser!
Meanwhile, CNN has just made some more projections, and the night keeps getting uglier for John McCain. Obama wins Iowa! He is over 200 Electoral votes! McCain gets Utah and Kansas...he wins the Mormon vote.
Love watching the networks try to keep this interesting...they have themselves broadcasting until 2 AM, and we can all see this election IS OVER!
Hold onto your seats! Obama coming on in Virginia! Has cut lead to less than one percent! Barack is going to pull this baby out! Obama holding lead in Florida!
In preparing a states to punish in new Obama Presidency list, Texas gets placed on top of the list as they gave McCain a BIG WIN THERE. Kentucky is another one that should get bitch slapped along with West Virginia. The time has come for some of these RED STATES to pay for their backward ideas and hateful ways. We got your prayers RIGHT HERE folks.
CNN has more numbers after the break, and I find myself moving on, beginning to put thought into what an Obama Administration will be like, what changes we will see as a nation as he prepares to take up residence in the White House.
One change we have already started to see...more black faces in the news media. This is not a good or bad thing, but think the networks have to be careful in their selections. For example, find CNN's decision to have a comedic news show at best odd. If I want to watch Comedic News I turn to the Comedy Channel, want to watch The Daily Show, and Steven Colbert. I go to CNN for SERIOUS NEWS.
Another OUCH for McCain...New Hampshire and its four Electoral Votes will go to Barack Obama. I should not be laughing, but I am! So much for all his Townhall Meetings, and his relationship with the people of New Hampshire...maybe now we can start being fair, giving OTHER STATES a chance to GO FIRST come the next Presidential Election in 2012.
Look for an end, or the beginning of the end of Affirmative Action under a Barack Presidency. Oddly, look for a huge fight when Barack Obama tries to grant Amnesty to illegal aliens, and when he tries to include Illegal Aliens in a Universal Health Care plan.
On the world stage, Obama will go into office with a lot of nations ready to give him, and America a NEW LOOK. What he does with that opportunity remains to be seen. Look for early overtures to Iran, Cuba and Venezuela. YEs, Venezuela...we need peace in our section of the world, and we need Venezuela's oil, and they are a strategic nation to have on our side when both China and Russia decide to cause trouble in the Western Hemisphere which they will.
Iraq...I believe Obama will find his hands have been tied by George Bush, and that our troops are burdened down there through at least 2011, but I am guessing we are tied down there in some significant fashion through at least 2014.
Your next President is Barack Obama!
District of Columbia
Obama is winning BIG TIME in Florida, and changing the Demographics! I am almost ready to call Florida for Obama!
UGLY NIGHT SO FAR! McCain now up in North Carolina, has BIG early lead in Georgia, and Florida has tightened up! Indiana is still tight, and I think McCain has to be up by five percentage points before Gary comes in, or HE LOSES Indiana!
15 states closing soon! Ohio in that mix, as well as Pennsylvania! McCain has to win Pennsylvania, so that is a must watch set of poll numbers to see. Amazed that McCain is up in Virginia by such large numbers...again, is this the Bradley effect rearing its ugly head?
Good news so far in Florida, but we have seen late night games on the part of the Republicans in that state far too often.
In other news...just watched a brief video of Chicago as they let fans in to claim their space for Obama's speech later this evening. Mark my words...I think the scene is a tactical NIGHTMARE...look for serious trouble, even with an Obama win tonight...some major looting, perhaps even a small riot.
In more important news, McCain has a early lead in Florida, and his still hanging on in Indiana...right now, with Gary still sitting in the wings, I am very close to calling Indiana for Barack Obama.
Obama wins Vermont
McCain wins Kentucky...interesting side note...it is looking like Obama's coat tails might be just big enough to give Lunsford the Senate seat.
In Indiana, McCain has just moved ahead of Obama, but not by much...right now, Washington Scandal is leaning towards a Blue Indiana.

I have reservations, but I am going to vote for Obama as the lesser of two evils. I don't like McCain, and any chance he would have ever had in getting my vote, or at least getting me to stay home vanished when he put Sarah Palin on the ballot. She may have rejuvenated the Republican Base, but she conversely fired up many of us on the Democratic Side, gave many of us that were not happy with Obama (I supported Hillary) reason to plug back in and take a stand...sorry, but the thought of that Alaskan Wacko being a breath away from the presidency is unacceptable.
Let me go vote, and I'll be back on to live blog the election later in the day.

Then we have Proposition 8 out in California, and other similar efforts in states such as Colorado. How can any one morally or ethically defend their opposition of Gay Marriage? We are America, one of the core tenets of our constitution is EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL! Marriage is a legal right and responsibility with privileges and responsibilities governed BY LAWS, certified and recognized by a GOVERNMENT ISSUED Marriage License. The church has nothing what so ever to do with the Marriage License, or the legal contract that it represents. A church BLESSES a marriage. No one is FORCING CHURCHES to recognize or bless gay marriages...in fact, the church's blessing and/or recognition is not necessary! Two people, regardless of their sexual orientation or sex identification should be allowed too be married to the person of their choice with the full LEGAL RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITIES that a marriage license represents.
Ask a abused child who grew up in a heterosexual Christian household if they would prefer living in a non abusive gay Christian household, and I'd be willing to bet that abused child would choose the gay household. That's not a completely intellectual question...as an abuse survivor, wish I would have had such a choice as a child. I know first hand that being heterosexual does not guarantee a good marriage, does not defacto make two people great candidates for parenthood. My parents went to church on Sunday, prayed to their Jesus, were respected members of that community...Monday through Saturday was a different story. For that matter, how come none of those supposed Christians ever spoke up...surely they could see my bruises?
What happened to the parable we were taught in Bible School that preaches, "Let he without sin cast the first stone."? Never mind, being rhetorical here...it's like a basic principle of Christianity says God gives us FREEDOM OF CHOICE, yet Christians in the name of God want to take that away when it comes to the Pro Life verse Pro Choice debate. Curious here...can you explain to me your reasoning...when I ask how God could let me be abused, I've been told by religious leaders that God gives us freedom of choice, and sometimes others make bad choices that see bad things happen to good people...should not that same arguement apply to abortion?Should it not be up to a woman to decide what she wants to do with her body, and what is inside of it? Again a rhetorical question...if Christians really believed in God and the messages of Jesus, they would respect the gift of Choice that God has given us, would let people use that freedom of choice in choosing their life partners.
Do the right thing California, and preserve a gay couples right to be LAWFULLY WEDDED. Vote NO on Prop 8!
Gay-marriage supporters work to make voters' choices on Proposition 8 personal ones
SAN FRANCISCO November 2, 2008 (AP)
As California voters prepare to decide Tuesday whether to eliminate the marriage rights same-sex couples won five months ago, gays and their allies have been encouraged to tell co-workers and neighbors why legalizing the unions matters to them.
Same-sex couples who have married since June knocked on doors in neighborhoods across the state on Sunday to share stories with the voters they hoped to persuade to defeat Proposition 8.
In recent weeks, other gay opponents of the ban, including a Roman Catholic priest, a former Republican mayor and a small-town newspaper editor, came out of the closet to show how the issue cuts across religious and social lines.
Proposition 8 has turned into this year's most expensive election question aside from the presidential race. Religious and civil rights groups have poured money and effort into the drive, making it one of the nation's most closely watched races.
During his 23 years as a priest in the San Joaquin Valley, the Rev. Geoffrey Farrow offered solace to a mother who did not know how to relate to her lesbian daughter and to an 11-year-old boy who thought he might be gay.
Yet it was not until some parishioners confided they were confused about how to vote on Proposition 8 that Farrow, 50, decided he had an obligation to minister to a bigger audience — even if it meant publicly disagreeing with his bishop and other church leaders.
He asked his parishioners to consider that their votes "can cause other human beings untold happiness or sorrow for a lifetime." Then he concluded by observing that he was prepared for any consequences of his words.
One thing is certain...we are on the precipice of change. The question is, what kind of a change are we about to see, and is it possible to get enough Americans on the same game page to make that change a positive experience for American families, a coming together of America as a nation as we move into even greater days ahead, or will those changes tear apart our nation at the seams as our divisions pull us even further apart. Red verse blue states, conservative verse liberal, lower and middle class against both the elite and illegals, the boomers declaring war on everyone that expects us once again to sacrifice in the name of everybody else.
Leave no doubt, America is a divided nation, a nation that has been infected by some horrid diseases such as greed, corruption, and even illegal immigration. No matter who is elected, one thing is certain...both Presidential candidates are expecting those who live on Main Street to make great sacrifices for a better tomorrow, and it is those sacrifices, how they are crafted, how they are presented that will unite us as a nation, or tear us apart.
I can only speak for myself, can only give voice to my own heart, can only address Barack Obama as one Boomer, but it is my belief that many across this once great land share my sentiments, my passions, and my angers. As one of 75 Million Boomers, as one person in what is the largest voting block America has even known, I am tired of being treated as a second class citizen who is always being the one doing the sacrificing, always being told it's not our turn. No longer am I willing to SACRIFICE so that the next generation, or illegal aliens, or people of color can have their opportunity...I want my turn, and more importantly, I want just what is due me, nothing more and nothing less. I don't want to pay for a Wall Street Bailout when Wall Street Trashed my 401K, and I don't want to Sacrifice my Social Security income to say Social Security for my children, and their children...I don't even have children, so why should I starve to save something for those I do not even know?
Let me try to put this seeming selfishness into proper perspective.
I was four years old when John F. Kennedy was elected president, I shook his hand in Louisville Kentucky. I grew up as a child with Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Desegregation, LBJ, Robert Kennedy, the Vietnam War, and the Civil Rights Movement that brought with it Affirmative Action. These eyes have seen and lived a lot of history, watched assassinations of our leaders, watched protests as blacks demanded equal rights, watched protests as Americans demanded the end of a wrong war, and watched as my parents and their parents adjusted to a different world where words like nigger were no longer appropriate, a world where their children (me)went to school and shared classrooms with people of a different color.
In the 70's, and for part of the 80's I can remember first hand applying for jobs, being told they could not hire me because affirmative action required that good union jobs were being given to minorities...I was a young man, I'd had nothing to do with the sins of the past, but I and others like me were asked to pay the price to level the playing field. Not asking for a medal, but am asking for some honesty...many of us in the Boomer generation paid the tab for Affirmative Action, are in some ways still paying that bill.
In the 80's, we watched as Illegal Aliens swelled our ranks, lowered our wages, and stole our jobs. We listened to, and believed Ronald Reagan when he called for us to accept an Amnesty, took him and our Federal Government at their word when they promised us it would be the last such Amnesty. We accepted the cost of absorbing millions of illegals, then as now, many of them from various Latin countries.
We played by the rules, accepted without question the sacrifices we were asked to make in the name of a better America. We paid the price for Affirmative Action, we paid the price to absorb millions of illegal aliens into our economy, and we did as our elders and our leaders asked. We paid into the Social Security System, accepted a huge increase in what we had to pay into that system. We embraced the concept of 401K's and Individual Retirement Accounts, and faithfully invested our income into these vehicles as we invested in America while putting away for our own Golden Years.
The second tsunami of illegal aliens started in the Clinton years, and instead of protecting us, the American Worker, our government sided with Big Business, embraced the concept of a One World Economy, embraced the concept that cheap wages were a good thing for bottom line profits, and therefore good for America...they were and are wrong. Loans were made to people who could not afford them, and a recipe for disaster was mixed, and once again the crisis we as a nation now face, the cost of fixing it has to be born, and it is obvious that both McCain and Obama think we Boomers should once again tighten our belts, pull up our boots and suck it in for the good of the nation.
To quote OBama, "Not this time!" We are not willing to have our Federal Government force us to continue working for an extra three, four, even five years in the name of saving Social Security...HELL NO, it is time that our Federal Government PAY BACK THOSE IOU's in the Social Security cookie jar. If you can force taxpayers to pick up a one trillion dollar bill for the bailout of Wall Street, then you can repay what you as a government have stolen from us Baby Boomers.
You want to overhaul the health care system, want to have health care for all...NOT if you are intending on using our tax dollars to provide health insurance for those who are here in American Illegally. Half of those uninsured are illegal aliens and their children...WE WILL NOT SACRIFICE to give them benefits they do not deserve. Hell no, not this time!
World Class educations...where is OUR WORLD CLASS EDUCATION? Give us that same opportunity, let us teach in our Golden Years in exchange for that World Class Education we never had a shot at. Don't ask us to pay for something we ourselves are not going to be given access too! How many blacks and other minorities got a chance at a world class education thanks to Affirmative Action? How many whites were denied that same opportunity because (lets be honest) we were the wrong color, even though our family finances were no better. Many of us BOOMERS paid that price for affirmative action, and now we want OUR EQUAL RIGHTS, WANT OUR EQUAL OPPORTUNITY. We are not going to stand still while Big Business and our Federal Government once again steal our dream, this time giving it to illegal aliens...Hell no, NOT THIS TIME.
You speak of GOOD PAYING JOBS...what good are those jobs if you allow corporate America to SHIP IN WORKERS through A) the H1 Visa program, and B) through unchecked illegal immigration coupled with rampant hiring of illegal aliens. We are not willing to accept AMNESTY (a pathway to citizenship), are not willing to see our Federal Government provide AMNESTY for 12-25 million illegal alien criminals. The gravy train is over, and if we are going to accept the sacrifices you need us to accept in the name of saving our economy, and our nation, it is going to come with a cost and the first DEMAND WE HAVE, is the DEPORTATION OF ILLEGAL ALIENS, the imprisonment of all those who hire them, imprisonment of those who aid and abet them in remaining in America, such as the Catholic Church. If you want a NEW DEAL with Main Street Americans, then we get to be FIRST IN LINE, rather than always being the ones to sacrifice in the name of some other interest group.
Affirmative Action...NO MORE, that slate needs to be wiped clean, it is time to end reverse racism, time for all citizens of America to have equal opportunity, regardless of race, creed or color...Affirmative Action is a wrong sighted, racist system that must come to an end. Martin Luther King's dream is realized with Obama's presidency, and it is unfair to continue penalizing White's for the color of our skin. We want A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD, and that reality can only be realized with the elimination of Affirmative Action.
Change is coming, and that change can be good or it can be bad. Good change will see America rise to new heights as we lead the world through the 21st century. Choose wrongly, continue to oppress and depress the middle class, continue to kowtow to illegal aliens, and you will see revolt in the streets, a civil war fought with modern days weapons in the streets of America as tens of millions are slaughtered on the altar of CHEAP WAGES and Corporate Profits. The time has come that we have a government that takes care of WE THE PEOPLE, the people being those people who are LEGAL CITIZENS AND IMMIGRANTS OF AMERICA. We the people means we put a moratorium on all immigration for a period of five-ten years while we retrain and re-employ our own citizens. If our government continues in its efforts to bankrupt and eliminate the middle class, we will see war here in America as brother kills brother and Main Street burns to the ground.
State-by-state we look at the race for the White House, some key congressional and gubernatorial campaigns. (Electoral votes in parentheses.)
This is a McCain state, primarily because of Radical Right Wing Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions.
Smart money says this is running mate Sarah Palin's state, so it is safe for McCain. Not so sure about that, and believe there is a slim chance this state turns blue. The GOP's two big players, convicted GOP Sen. Ted Stevens and Republican Rep. Don Young are in serious trouble, and the state's largest paper endorsed Barack Obama. Further, this state really cannot afford to back a loser in what has been a very contiguous campaign.
This McCain's home state but it is in play along the fringe...McCain wins it in a close one, but Democrats gain in the House.
This one goes for McCain...call it the Good Old Boy/Huckabee factor.
Obama gets the big dog bone! Democrats have a shot at gaining House seat.
Obama has shot in red state...will not go Blue if Republicans get out their base in BIG NUMBERS. Rep. Mark Udall goes back to Washington.
Hands down Obama state...the real question...are his coattails big enough to help the Democrats finally get rid of Rep Chris Shays, a real DIRT BAG?
Blue state all the way! Joe Biden carries it, and gets re-elected to Senate...Jack Markell keeps Governor's office and will name his (Biden's) replacement.
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA (3)
Obama's Black Army delivers HUGE WIN!
Tough fight for Obama and McCain. Democrats in a close one as they get their long awaited revenge from the 2000 election.
McCain wins only if the Republican BASE comes out big on election day...big early voting turnout gives Obama hope.
Obama wins easily.
Obama's home state is his. Sadly, scum bag Sen. Durbin wins new term. Democrats again will gain at least one seat in house in Illinois.
INDIANA (11) -- Obama might just steal this one.
Obama's the favorite. Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin goes back to Washington.
Easy win for McCain in this seriously red neck, good old boy state.
McCain. Democrats pick up one House seat.
LOUSIANA (9) -- McCain
Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu goes back to DC in a close one.
Obama wins easily...McCain will not get his one Electoral Vote, the whole TIE SCENARIO down the drain.
Obama territory. Democrats pick up seat in House.
Obama win. Sen. John Kerry gets new term.
McCain conceded state to Obama. Democratic Sen. Carl Levin wins easily.
Obama's base, wins easily. Al Franken wins on Obama Coattails...right place right time, or as they say, timing is everything.
Classic swing state that I am predicting goes BLUE in a close one. Democrat Jay Nixon's strong run for Governor may carry this one for Obama.
McCain. Obama's push for this state started to late! Plus, this is Cheney territory.
McCain. However, think Obama has a real shot at pealing off one Electoral Vote.
This one goes Blue...Latino vote puts Obama over the top.
NEW HAMPSHIRE (4) -- Obama wins.
NEW JERSEY (15)
Safe for Obama. Democrats pick up two seats in house on Obama coattails.
NEW MEXICO (5)
Obama in a close one...Democrats pick up another two house seats.
NORTH CAROLINA (15)
This state I think is going to ride on how people reach to Elizabeth Dole's egregious attack. If she wins, North Carolina goes Red, but if Dole goes down to defeat, North Carolina is an Obama Blue state.
NORTH DAKOTA (3)
Leaning McCain. This is almost certainly going to end up Red.
Obama ahead in a must win for McCain. I think this state goes blue with a strong turn out of the youth vote. Democrats pick up at least one House seat.
Obama easy winner.
Obama ahead in polls...how this state ends up may depend on Murtha being forgiven, or not being forgiven. The Ashley Todd situation may have helped give this to the Democrats when all is said and done.
RHODE ISLAND (4)
Part of Obama base. Democratic Sen. Jack Reed sure bet.
SOUTH CAROLINA (8)
SOUTH DAKOTA (3)
McCain. Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson safe.
Easy win McCain.
McCain...he can thank Bush for Texas.
Obama ahead in traditionally Republican state. This would be where the Bradley effect could rear its ugly head. Democrats gain at least one seat in House.
Obama in cake walk.
WEST VIRGINIA (5)
The Economy could see Obama sneak in a win in a state that should go to McCain. West Virginia may vote with their pocket books, decide it is better to back a winner.
Obama. Democratic Rep. Steve Kagen could be in trouble.
McCain Red state all the way.
I predict and Obama win on Election Night with him winning at least 340 Electorial votes.
As for the Senate...if it is a BIG NIGHT for Obama (over 350 Electorial Votes) look for a super majority of 61 seats in the Senate. Below 340, and look for the Democrats to have 58 seats in the Senate.
In the house...I am predicting at least a 25 seat gain.
Wednesday will get ugly anyway we slice it. When the shock really sits in, when the radical right wing of the Republican Party realizes they have lost everything, hold onto your seats...worse...look for Sarah Palin to be leading the radical fringe into battle as she beats the drums of hate and religious intolerance.
In closing...look for President Elect Obama to instantly start trying to lower public expectations as he starts back pedaling on campaign promises.
