How can Senator Obama lose the election?
For instance, Senator Barack Obama is vulnerable to a vicious Republican attack on who he is and his inexperience — He is a first term Senator who burst on the scene four years ago. His image with the American People is vulnerable to a negative attack which the Republicans have perfected in their famous ‘Swift-boating’ technique, used to defeat John Kerry. If Obama fails to consolidate the 18 million core voters who Clinton won along with his own 18 million followers, then he will likely give away enough voters to give McCain the election. So the next important event to watch is whether he chooses Clinton as VP — on this day he will either guarantee his win, or possibly guarantee his own loss, since not choosing Clinton will undoubtedly send many of her supporters into the GOP camp or convince them to just stay home out of protest. Obama’s advisors might act like they ‘don’t need Clinton’s people’ but privately they know this will be political suicide to dismiss Clinton’s HUGE wins.
He could very easily lose it for a variety of reasons. This is looking alot like the Mondale Ferraro/Reagan Bush election in 1984. The Media loved Mondale and to watch the news you would have thought he was going to win easily.

Obama hasn’t swayed enough of the Hillary voters in his direction and most Hillary supporters I know personally are leaning towards McCain as he is moderate while Obama is too far left of Hillary, Add to that the race issue and he has problems. We may not like to admit it but there are ALOT of closet racists among the Democrats, Blue collar workers and middle america and many white collar workers as well are still racist to a large degree. I know many Democrats who publicly say they are not racist but get a few beers in them and the “N” word comes out rather easily. I’
David Plouffe and David Axelrod set up the campaign which depict Senator Obama as another totem pole figure in the Nixonian Era (1969-Present) of democracy by exclusion. After 40 years, what the people of this nation need is INCLUSIVE democracy and not a government that keeps tearing America apart. We keep hearing about exit strategies from the war in Iraq. What about exit strategies from the wars over here that are destroying our nation? We need an exit strategy from the war on drugs(WOD) which has exacerbated the problem of drug abuse by promoting fear and ignorance, and the war on terror (WOT) that has turned our nation into a police state. We don’t need wars that compromise the lives of U.S. citizens. We need Drug Use Education (DUE) that fortifies and strengthens our society. We need an end to the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) that makes it impossible for physicians to treat patients with chronic medical disorders requiring a controlled substance. The WOT should be transfo
