This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, calls in at 6:30am to talk about the close congressional races (such as Tinklenberg vs. Bachmann in Minnesota).

Gen. Wesley Clark calls in at 7:30am to talk about the election next week.

Barack Obama will make his closing arguments in a half-hour prime time television special tonight. Top Obama campaign officials say it will be more like a television show, rather than a speech. Obama is likely to appear at the beginning and end of the program, talking about his agenda. The rest of the time we will see people like Warren Buffett and Colin Powell saying why Americans should vote for Obama.

The most recent CNN poll of polls showed Obama with an 8-point lead over John McCain, 51 percent to 43 percent. Most other national polls show Obama with a lead ranging between 5 points and double digits.

McCain and Palin yesterday called on Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) to resign, a day after the Alaska lawmaker was convicted on federal corruption charges. Other GOP Senators followed suit, as did Barack Obama.

Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) returned to D.C. yesterday for the first time since July, following an operation for a brain tumor in June. “He thought this would be a good time to be back,” said a spokesman. Kennedy hasn’t decided whether he will attend the “lame duck” session following next week’s election.
