According to many reports, whatever lead Obama had has slipped significantly. I have seen recent polls and it is encouraging to those who are looking forward to Obama losing this election.

Holiday over for Obama as tight race, VP choice loom
By Jeff Mason
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Reuters) – The vacation is definitely over for Barack Obama.
The Democratic U.S. presidential candidate has returned to the campaign trail from a family trip to Hawaii to face a host of challenges: the search for a vice-presidential running mate, his party’s convention, and a resurgent Republican opponent.
What a difference a week makes. While Obama relaxed in Hawaii, the crisis between Russia and Georgia dominated headlines, allowing veteran Republican rival John McCain to demonstrate his foreign policy credentials.
Polls showed the race becoming increasingly tight ahead of the Nov. 4 vote, with McCain gaining ground after a series of television ads that criticized the Illinois senator.
I can only hope that when the people begin to scrutinize just who the Democratic leadership allowed to be nominated they will be shocked and amazed. I have a feeling that buyers remorse will set in and the democrats who are leading will be held liable by the majority of the moderate Democrats.
