STU: Well, I tell you, with Glenn's pending endorsement, all of this information may be moot.
GLENN: Who do you think it is? Who do you think it is?
STU: I was thinking Cynthia McKinney.
GLENN: You are very, very close. You are actually closer than you think you are. Wait until you -- I mean that. You are actually closer than you think you are.
STU: Well, on the spirit of -- before we hear the endorsement, we might as well look at the state of the race now. Right now there's a new poll out that's actually saying that John McCain is only up by 4 in Arizona. I don't know if I believe that but, hey, socialism sells. I believe that's the new slogan of our country, socialism sells, especially when the other side seems embarrassed to present the alternative. But there are ten states that are basically in big trouble for John McCain here that he needs to win, I don't know, eight of them. It's Iowa, New Mexico, Virginia, Ohio, Nevada, Missouri, Florida, North Carolina and Indiana. The trick -- if he wins the easiest -- the easiest states to win there it's 7 points, 6, 6, 3, 2, 1 and 0, which are pretty much tied in Indiana. He needs to win all of those, that would give him a slight electoral win. It's a hard -- it's a very high hill to climb, but Glenn's endorsement is right around the corner, I'm sure.
GLENN: Oh, I'm sure it's going to make all the difference.
STU: It's going to make all the difference in the world. You
GLENN: You think it's John McCain, don't you?
STU: I don't know, Glenn. We're all on the edge of our chairs right now. But I will say on the moment of hope segment, in the Senate the Minneapolis staunch review, not exactly a Republican organization, has endorsed Norm Coleman over his challenger comedian Al Franken. The bottom line is if you had an actual normal Democrat who had any qualifications for the office he was seeking, papers would jump to endorse him in this climate. This is a state known for not voting for the letter after the candidate's name. Eugenics got to be honest about it. They throw that -- Minnesota, you throw away your entire reputation if you elect Al Franken. He's a horrible, horrible, horrible candidate and quite possibly a worse comedian. So --
GLENN: What about human being?
STU: And human being. And so far at least the polls have been very close but a new poll, the moment of hope, Norm Coleman 36, Al Franken 27. Now, there's a lot -- there's 16 for a third party and a lot of undecided in that but I'm taking it as good news for today.
Very good point on that potential person. Glenn. Right now we're going to call Arkansas for John McCain and Washington for Barack Obama. Our official electoral count right now, John McCain 127, Barack Obama 88.
