I have a question about the "punished with a baby", if Fox news picks up(which they're beginning too) on this and runs this thing 24/7, if Obama is the nominee, will that re-galvanize the evangelical vote behind someone even like McCain. One of my hopes for this election would be that they'd be so "de-moralized"(pun-intended)given the fact that they didn't have a firebrand like bush that they'd just stay home, instead of coming out in droves like they did in the year 2004 (which many have credited for kerry's defeat among other things) So I'm looking for some honest opinions of yours. IF you believed that he was favored to win the nomination/GE before this (if you already think he wasn't going to win, fine, but what I'm trying to gauge here are CHANGES opinion), what do you think his chances are now (just based on your view of the electorate in general and independent on your own views about what he said)
