That One & Obama Campaign Volunteers

Part I: That One

Earlier in the campaign McCain called Obama “the one”, now he called him “that one” in the debate tonight. A lot of pundits are seeing it as racially tinged, I really don’t think so. Disrespectful? Maybe, but not really racial. Here’s the clip:

By the way, if you’re wondering, Obama trounced McCain. McCain really needed to win big and he lost big, and in his beloved town hall format no less. At some points, McCain looked like he was lost in the woods shouting at mirrors. His jokes would’ve fallen flat even if the audience weren’t instructed to keep quiet. There was a moment at the end when he had a bonding moment with a veteran but there weren’t enough specifics laid out, with the exception of McCain casually mentioning a new plan of his to buy and refinance every bad mortgage, which would cost around $300 million. Republicans especially must be groaning about that.

The whole financial bailout situation has Republicans caught between a rock and a hard place, where the rock would be a second Great Depression and the hard place would be their laissez-faire principals and hatred for government spending. Democrats have only the rock to contend with. The result is what you saw with the bailout: the House Republicans revolted against their own leadership in the White House. The Republicans are a party split in half, and with no end to the financial turmoil in sight, it’s going to be the Democrats who have any unity whatsoever.

My prediction is that Obama wins and wins handily, and has a sizeable majority in both houses of Congress. This country’s government is going to rapidly change, and whether you agree with the proposed changes, something will definitely get done.
