This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

CNN’s Paul Begala calls in at 6:30am pacific to talk about the campaigns, the debates, and his new book, “Third Term: Why George W. Bush ♥ John McCain.”

Comedian Michael McDonald (MAD TV) calls in at 8:30am pacific to talk about politics and pop culture, and to promote his upcoming appearance at the Improv in Brea, California.

Barack Obama told ABC News that the personal attacks levied against him by John McCain’s campaign, particularly references to his “association” with Bill Ayers, are an attempt to “score cheap political points.” Obama also noted that McCain “wasn’t willing to say it to my face” at Tuesday night’s debate.

Barack Obama is outspending John McCain 3-to-1 in key battleground states, forcing McCain to spend more money in states that had previously been reliably red.

Obama has a clear lead in every state John Kerry won in 2004, plus is likely to win IA and NM, states that went to Bush in 2004. That leaves 8 states as competitive toss-up states, including OH, FL, MO, IN, NC, CO, NV, and VA.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY), head of the Dem Senatorial Campaign Committee, said yesterday that the prospect of Dems getting 60 seats, which seemed far-fetched just a year ago, “keep getting better.” Dems now hold 51 seats in the senate, if one includes Joe Lieberman and Bernie Sanders, both independents.
