If the pundits are to be believed, McSame has benefited from the situation in Georgia.

The pundits MADE him benefit--because they told us he would benefit.
If someone tells the unwashed lo-info public that one particular candidate has an advantage on the issue of the day, the public automatically believes it. If the pundits trumpeted Obama as the hero for his measured, appropriate response to the situation, the public would start to believe that as well. The media is doing its best to see McLame win.

2. Wow--what an incredible turn of events.
Hopefully a more aggressive Obama, a good vp choice and a successful convention can turn things around.
