50. Yup, Every poll I've seen
Gives a slight edge to Obama. And remember, not everyone in the US is as passionate about politics as we are: it's sadly true, as one previous poster put it, that more people watch American Idol than the Democratic returns. Anyone who watched both McCain's and Obama's speeches on Tuesday night could see that Our Guy's got the moxie and the gravitas to be a winner, but how many people did? I'm really looking forward to the debates. Obama's a charismatic speaker: he'll blow them away, unlike Al Gore, who - much as I admire the man - wasn't particularly inspiring in the debates.

It's also true that during these last few weeks we Dems have been particularly busy pointing out each candidate's flaws. If we can unite and turn that rancor on McCain, I believe we could make that slight edge a lot bigger.

I'm cautiously optimistic. Given a level playing field (and knowing the Repubs, that's not a given), I think we can do it.
