If McCain can keep his cool and make Obama own up to his past then I'm not counting McCain out until the winner is confirmed.
I'm sorry but this is moot. Who will "confirm" the winner? After a rather shaky performace of McCain's in the last debate, FAUX viewers voted that he won by a 85% margin. Go figure.

1) Obama had carrer relations with a know terrorist. (2) He spiritual advisor is anti white and anti American according to his own words. (3) The leader of the largest Islamic religion in America has called him the messiah and Obama has blurbed his book. (4) With that Obama has aided the Kenyan president-dictator to attempt to win an election there and help institute Islamic Sharia law (check it out). (5)Then there is ACORN, voter fraud, etc. (6) Then there is one last thing. Obama's secret, and that would be his refusal to produce a valid birth certificate.
(7)This does not even approach that fact that Obama has no leadership abilities, (8) no military service, and (9) has only been in the Senate a couple of years, (10) has never taken a stand on any issue, (11) wants to change our ties to Israel, wants to "spread the wealth around", (12) wants to increase taxes, (13) wants to holds meetings with "community organizers" such as Acorn to decide policy.
All McCain needs to do in support of himself is say..
(14) 1. No tax increases, period.
(15) 2. No more spending sprees and pork.
In a TV ad, McCain says Obama "lied" about his association with William Ayers, a former bomb-setting, anti-war radical from the 1960s and '70s. We find McCain's claim to be groundless. New details have recently come to light, but nothing Obama said previously has been shown to be false.
In a Web ad and in repeated attacks from the stump, McCain describes the two as associates, and Palin claims they "pal around" together. But so far as is known, their relationship was never very close. An Obama spokesman says they last saw each other in a chance encounter on the street more than a year ago.
McCain says in an Internet ad that the two "ran a radical 'education' foundation" in Chicago. But the supposedly "radical" group was supported by a Republican governor and included on its board prominent local civic leaders, including one former Nixon administration official who has given $1,500 to McCain's campaign this year. Education Week says the group's work "reflected mainstream thinking" among school reformers. The group was the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, started by a $49 million grant from the Annenberg Foundation, which was established by the publisher Walter Annenberg, a prominent Republican whose widow, Leonore, is a contributor to the McCain campaign.

If McCain wins then he wins on honesty. If Obama wins he will win by being a fraud.
In politics it is generally not considered a good sign when voters are laughing at you, not with you. And by the end of the third and last presidential debate, the undecided voters who had gathered in Denver for Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg's focus group were "audibly snickering" at John McCain's grimaces, eye-bulging, and repeated references to "Joe the Plumber."
The group of 50 uncommitted voters should have at least been receptive to McCain--Republicans and Independents outnumbered Democrats in the group by almost 4 to 1, and they started the evening with much warmer responses to McCain than to his Democratic opponent, Barack Obama. But by the time it was all over, so few of them had declared their support for McCain that there weren't enough for Greenberg to separate them into a post-debate focus group. Meanwhile, the Obama supporters had to assemble in two different rooms to keep their discussion groups manageable.
