New Reuters/Zogby Ten States Battleground Poll Reveals
"Democratic hopeful John Kerry continues to lead in six battleground states, and has surged to a tie in New Mexico, according to the latest Reuters/Zogby ten-state battleground poll. The poll also found President Bush continuing to lead in Ohio, Nevada and Colorado. The telephone polls of approximately 600 likely voters per state were conducted from Thursday through Sunday (October 28-31, 2004). The margin of error is /- 4.1 percentage points."
ABP - This would put Kerry in the 300's for electoral votes.
Part of 9/11 Report Remains Unreleased; An Inquiry Is Begun
Really? An inquiry? FINALLY!
One last chapter of the investigation by the Sept. 11 commission, a supplement completed more than two months ago, has not yet been made public by the Justice Department, and officials say it is unlikely to be released before the presidential election, even though that had been a major goal of deadlines set for the panel.

Quote of the Day
"We believe John Kerry will have the credibility with the international community to mend traditional alliances and work with them to make sense of the havoc in Iraq. We also believe he has the intellectual resilience to listen to a wide range of opinion on foreign policy and not to exclude the dissenting voices that need to be heard. More important, we believe he is the candidate most likely to restore unity to a fiercely divided nation."

Remember this: McCain
Wrapping up a campaign shadowed by war and terrorism, President Bush and Democratic Sen. John Kerry unabashedly sought political advantage Saturday from Osama bin Laden's re-emergence."It's very helpful to the president," contended Bush ally Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., although the president didn't mention the menacing new message from bin Laden at his first campaign stops on a four-state, 14-hour swing.
Like Giuliani's "blame it on the troops" statement, this ranks as yet another despicable and pathetic assertion from the GOP.
Our armed forces are dying trying to capture "terrorists". And, to hear a "hero" like John McCain say something as rabidly disgusting as "it's very helpful to the president" when bin Laden comes across the screen, clearly alive (and making videos), well... it's awful. Simply awful.
When John McCain wants to run for President in 2008, he turned a terror message from a mass murderer to the American people in to something that is "good for the president".
McCain feels "it's helpful" that bin Laden is alive and terrorizing America.

wallstreetjackass: Who served?
Wall Street Jackass (link below) has a list that I've seen before, but it's been brought back out at the perfect time;
The list is of all our talking heads in office. Who served, and who didn't (and why):
ABP posts on Kos's report of the Daily News report (yeah, it's that screwy).
I saw this over at DailyKos and had to say something;
Does anybody really take the N.Y. Daily News seriously enough to put it in a blog (he says realizing he is now putting it in his own)?
"We want people to think 'terrorism' for the last four days," said a Bush-Cheney campaign official. "And anything that raises the issue in people's minds is good for us."
A senior GOP strategist added, "anything that makes people nervous about their personal safety helps Bush."
He called it "a little gift," saying it helps the President but doesn't guarantee his reelection.
