Ross Bettinger, Obama vs McCain
I was going to vote for McCain because he has more experience than Obama until McCain put Palin on his ticket. It was a brilliant short-term move but it will cost him the election. She has presence and knows how to present herself but her intellectual content and brain power appear to be thin gruel for a hungry nation.
Obama has sold himself on "hope" and change and a new face in politics, all of which are very powerful terms and symbols of transformation, but the current economic chaos will limit his (and any President's) "degrees of freedom " to maneuver quite severely. Good luck to the next President of these United States!
I agree with Ian, that's a cool site for the DM geeks. Really solid methodology from what I can tell. I'm jealous of their skills.

They use statistical analysis to get a better model of polls. Quite comprehensive, and they try to be very transparent about their models.
