Doomsday Scenario
10-22-2008
I have posted a couple of items recently touching on the inevitable Democratic anxiety that even with Barack Obama leading in a variety of national and battleground state polls, there is still time for the party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Traumatized by two narrow losses in 2000 and 2004, some of the party faithful are having difficulty accepting the possibility that Obama could actually win in two weeks.
 
Along these same lines, Roger Simon has posted a tongue-in-cheek piece on Politico.com, in which he considers this phenomenon at greater length. Simon depicts Democrats as concerned that not only will they be undone by the foibles of their own ticket, but also by the likelihood that Republican strategists are too shrewd not to have at least one more potentially game-changing surprise up their sleeves for the closing days of the campaign.
