Friday Observations

NBC is bragging that this Sundays Meet the Press will be a full hour of Barack Obama exclusively........Who's surprised?

Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives still refuse to let any legislation come to the floor for a vote that allows American oil reserves be explored. Considering a gas tax hike.

MSNBC caption on this mornings "morning joe": Berlin crowd---largest of his campaign.

Andrea Mitchell reported this morning from Germany that the Obama campaign is upset because the Pentagon told Obama he could not visit the wounded soldiers because it would be a campaign and not a congressional delegation. This sounds like a nice spin to me.

McCain advances in recent polls

The Republican leads in Colorado, is close in Minnesota and narrowing the gap in Michigan and Wisconsin, the surveys say. The Democrat's 'post-primary bubble . . . is leaking a bit.'

Republican presidential candidate John McCain is tightening the presidential race against Democratic rival Barack Obama in four key states, according to polls released this morning.The four polls conducted by Quinnipiac University in partnership with the Wall Street Journal and show that McCain is running slightly ahead of Obama in Colorado, is close in Minnesota and has narrowed the gap in Michigan and Wisconsin.

Sports notes:

The Milwaukee Brewers swept the Giants and the Cards in the last seven days forcing the Cardinals into third place in their division and the Giants into 4th. It should be pointed out the while the Cards are still ten games over .500, the Giants, (seven games out of first), are fifteen games under .500.
