I might vote for him if he moves to the Left. He was too much of a Centrist for me. He would have been another Conservative Democrat like Bill Clinton. If push came to shove, and the election was between John Kerry and John McCain......I'd vote for John Kerry. I don't really have too much against John McCain (he's a moderate Conservative), but John Kerry is a little further to the left, and thus a little closer to me.

The most recent electoral vote tallies I've seen put Obama up by as much as 278 - already over the number (270) needed to win.

Meaning that if current trends continue, Obama could wind up well upwards of 300 electoral votes. This thing is looking like an electoral...
