Obama and McCain Believe Americans Want Leaders To "Change the Bad Habits of Washington"

President-Elect Barack Obama and Senator John McCain issued a joint statement after their Chicago meeting today, November 17.

"'At this defining moment in history, we believe that Americans of all parties want and need their leaders to come together and change the bad habits of Washington so that we can solve the common and urgent challenges of our time.'"

"'It is in this spirit that we had a productive conversation today about the need to launch a new era of reform where we take on government waste and bitter partisanship in Washington in order to restore trust in government, and bring back prosperity and opportunity for every hardworking American family,'" it said. "'We hope to work together in the days and months ahead on critical challenges like solving our financial crisis, creating a new energy economy, and protecting our nation's security.'" 1

Will Obama Appoint Hillary Clinton and John McCain?

According to a article published last night, President-Elect Barack Obama is strongly considering appointing either Senator Hillary Clinton or New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson as the new Secretary of State.

According to this same CNN article, Obama plans on speaking with Senator John McCain on Monday. The article doesn't state exactly what the topic of the expected conversation will be, but I assume, based on the context, that Obama is considering McCain for a possible position also.

"Obama spoke with Sen. Hillary Clinton on Thursday and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Friday about the key Cabinet post, multiple Democratic sources said."

"Clinton's response to Obama's overture is unknown, but sources said the New York senator left the meeting with the impression that if she were interested in the post, it would be hers."
"Obama campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs is widely expected to be named White House press secretary, and chief strategist David Axelrod is expected to be picked as a White House senior adviser.
"Also Friday, the Obama transition team announced that the Illinois senator will meet with the man he defeated in the general election, Republican Sen. John McCain, on Monday."
I wonder what Senator John McCain's answer will be if he is offered a position in President-Elect Barack Obama's cabinet?

McCain Or Not McCain? That Is The Polling Question!

Is the answer John McCain/Sarah Palin or Barack Obama/Joe Biden? Do the polls show absolutely, without any shadows of doubts, that Obama will definitely win the 2008 Presidential Election? If that were the case then there would never be any reason for Americans to vote at all.

No matter how much the liberal media may have convinced you that there is no chance either in Heaven or on Earth that Republicans will ever live in the White House again, there is still the possibility that the liberal media is wrong. If you believe them, then logic indicates that you might also be equally wrong.

If you are a conservative, please don't allow the liberal media to persuade you that Barack Obama has already won. Liberals want you to stay home, or in your office, wherever the case may be, and sulk all day. You will make their day if you don't vote tomorrow.

Actually, according to the Daily Tracking Poll at
Rasmussen Reports, today's poll indicates:

Obama 52%
McCain 46%

Compare this to today's most recent
ABC News/Washington Post poll:

Obama 53%
McCain 44%

Those 3 extra percentage points that ABC News and the Washington Post have given to Obama today might be a lot different tomorrow. They shouldn't count their chickens (or presidents) before they hatch, and neither should you.
