Holy CR--. Has anyone heard that Drudge is to release a report tonight from a PA (Pysician assistant) that Cindy M was not hurt by an accidentally agressive handshake - but intentionally? I understand that it will very, very carefully avoid making any charge or insinuation. But....wow.

Actually, 43 is not very good for JM in Texas. The poll shows 16% undecided? For a blood-red state like Texas, that doesn't really bode too well for JM.

The poll is screwed up - Nader's not even on the ballot in Texas. And Republicans historically lag in Texas polling. Many statewide Republicans year after year win here in the very high 50's or low 60's - but they almost never poll that well in pre-election surveys.

There are just a lot of children of yellow dog Dmeocrats in Texas who vote Republican but still won't fess up to it.

The Senate race is important to watch. It is not all about Obama/McCain.

Keep in mind that Texas only became a "red state" starting in 1980. Before then, it was predominantly blue. In fact, in the last 38 elections that Texas was involved in, it only voted Rep 11 times. One the other hand, Cali, which is considered to be one of the bluest states, only became blue starting in 1992. In the last 38 elections that they were involved in, they have voted Rep 23 times. I honestly feel that Obama has good chance of defying the polls and turning Texas blue again. If not in this election, definitly the next. You can't get any redder in Texas than in Dallas where I live but the number of Obama signs in people's front lawns beg to differ.
