- Even before John McCain shook up the presidential race by tapping Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate, polls weren't showing the late-August lead that Barack Obama (and many Republicans) expected. Why so?It's not because of the brilliance of the McCain campaign.

They pay attention to the candidates and positions and make wise decisions about who should lead the country.
