 riding low in the polls, and Democratic fundraising and voter turnout both trumping Republicans in the primaries, the momentum was in their direction.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the White House.  The Republicans settled on a candidate by early February, while the Democrats were still fighting through the second Super Tuesday — perhaps all the way to the convention.  And the Republicans chose their most electable candidate.

Now polls show voters prefer McCain on the war and foreign policy as well as on the economy.  He hs a path to victory if he can focus voters on three traditional strengths of his party:  (1) national security, (2) the economy, and (3) the individual over big government. 

Fasten your seatbelts, folks, this could be a closer and more interesting election than anyone thought.
