I think McCain and Palin will win. I was in the Nixon campaign in 1968 and watched him try to coast to victory. If the election had been held a day or two later Humphrey would have won. Obama is already coasting even sooner than Nixon did. His idea that deregulation caused the crash is delusional. Hedge funds are actually outperforming banks and more regulated entities. Fanny and Freddy were pure political tools, regulated to the hilt to promote and mandate come-and-get-it EZchump mortgages, and the Democrats loved them both to death.
