National Repub officials: Liddy "almost certain to lose"

We already knew the Repubs were running scared--but get a load of this. Republican leaders and McCain campaign spokesmen think Liddy Dole will be out of a job.

The possibility that Democrats will build a muscular, 60-seat Senate majority is looking increasing plausible, with new polls showing a powerful surge for the party’s candidates in Minnesota, Kentucky and other states.

A poll out Friday shows Sen. Norm Coleman could now easily lose his Minnesota seat to comedian-turned-candidate Al Franken. A Colorado race that initially looked like a nail-biter has now broken decisively for the Democrats. A top official in the McCain camp told us Sen. Elizabeth Dole is virtually certain to lose in conservative North Carolina.

Wow. I have to admit I didn't expect this.

If You Haven't Canvassed Yet...With Special Bonus Obama Ad

A few weeks back I posted a diary titled How Can I Be a Better Volunteer for the Obama Campaign? , where I asked for advice on how to deal with my overall shyness and inexperience when it came to volunteering. I received many great responses, and the support of the community was inspiring and empowering.

A couple of weeks ago, I finally got up the gumption to volunteer, participating in a community canvass on a Sunday afternoon. I initially worried that I'd be sent out into some neighborhood alone, not knowing what the hell I was doing. But that was hardly the case.

31 Days: An Absentee U.S. Senator

DAY 31

Exactly one month before the election, and now that we’re down to the wire, political pundits from North Carolina and Washington DC are beginning to realize what North Carolinians have known for months – Elizabeth Dole is an absentee senator who has hardly lifted a finger to help hardworking families. Instead of working for her constituents, Dole has chosen instead to represent the interests of Big Oil and Gas, corporations that ship jobs overseas, and the failed policies of the Bush administration.

Read the entire post to read more on today's reason on why Elizabeth Dole is wrong for North Carolina and check back for updates over the next 31 days.
