And, frankly, the signage isn’t far off. Late last night, CNN flashed a poll that said not only did debate-viewers prefer Obama on the economy by double digits, they preferred him on Iraq by about four or five points. That has to signal the beginning of the end for McCain, doesn’t it? Iraq is supposed to be the one issue he will always own; the fact that it’s drifting away from him suggests that more and more Americans are talking themselves into a President Obama and his ability to handle all the tough issues.

For what it’s worth, Obama won just about every category in last night’s polls. Numbers here. I’m guessing Sarah Palin is really going to regret her brief excursion into national politics in a month or so.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
