    John McCain on Sen. Obama's dormant remarks on the coal industry: “We found out yesterday what Senator Obama really thinks about coal. In a new video talking about his policies on coal, he told the San Francisco Chronicle, “if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them.” “Now, I believe we need to control emissions,” added McCain, “but I’m not going to let our coal industry go bankrupt. I’m not going to let coal workers lose their jobs and I’m not going to let energy prices increase even more for our families.”...

    Kansas City, Oct 31, 2008 (CNA).- Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph Robert Finn has reminded the faithful that their salvation is at stake in the battle for holiness. Decrying the “casual manner” in which many Christians live within the “culture of death,” he urged Catholics to “stand up fearlessly against the agents of death.” Writing in his October 29 column for the Catholic Key, Bishop Finn began by recounting his recent celebration of a Traditional Latin High Mass, saying it highlights our participation with the Communion of Saints and its elements give us a “striking image of the Heavenly Jerusalem”...

    Late today, Karl Rove's Electoral College projection changed from 311, McCain 160, toss-up 67 to Obama 338, McCain 200, no toss-ups. I’ve only been doing professional GOP politics for 18 years, and Karl is a lot smart than I am. But the only way I will agree with him is when the final vote is tallied. We all know John has a huge mountain to climb tomorrow, but all the battleground states races have greatly tightened up. - FlA Latest update.....

    For five years Ali and Mohammed have lived alongside US soldiers in their Baghdad neighbourhood near Rasheed Street, a prominent commercial artery running through the heart of the Iraqi capital. During that time American culture and politics have become familiar to them, and they say that if they could, they would vote for Republican candidate John McCain in next week's US presidential election. "McCain would be best for Iraq because he would ensure stability," said Ali, 66, an expert on the Sumerian era. The personal qualities and political platforms of McCain and his Democrat rival Barack Obama are of little...

    CORAL GABLES (CBS4) ― Just one day before voters will decide on their next president, an invigorated John McCain rocked the house at a post-midnight rally on the University of Miami Campus in Coral Gables, in a speech aimed heavily at Miami's Hispanic community, with a promise that he would continue to fight and win the presidency on Tuesday. "We gotta have all of our rallies at this time of night, I'm telling you," he said to thunderous applause from the crowd that gathered under the banner "Estamos Unidos", Spanish for "We're United". Many had been waiting at the BankUnited...

    Sarah Palin was pretty fired-up over the newly unearthed Obama comments, saying to a crowd at Marietta College that her ticket would not let that happen to the coal industry. “Instead, we’ll make clean coal a reality and to help power the American economy with clean coal technology, we’re going to be looking to the hard-working people of Ohio and West Virginia and Pennsylvania.” With a wink and a smile she said “You betcha. Drill baby drill, and mine baby mine.”

    They were hammering Clare McCaskill (D-MO) defending Obama's comments - she was talking out of both sides of her mouth. Totally funny - the next guest they had on for the economy totally debunked McCaskill on taxes. She said that under Obama plan the tax rate will be no higher than Regan's. The guest said that Reagan's rate was 28% - with Obama it's 43-45% (I can't remember the exact number)

    PHILADELPHIA - Hillary Rodham Clinton is on her way to becoming the biggest loser of this election. If he wins tomorrow, Barack Obama will certainly be his party's standard-bearer in 2012 - icing Clinton out of the White House for at least eight years. And she'll be nearly 70 in 2016 - a young sprout compared to John McCain but probably too old to carry the flag for the newly recast party of youth and hope. Until then, Clinton will be exiled to the Senate to serve out her second term, more like a sentence than a term for the...

    At an event at a Boca Raton synagogue, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said that the United States should let Russia invade Georgia. Beginning at the 3:50 mark in the following YouTube video, which was recorded by Pamela Geller of the blog Atlas Shrugs, Nadler says: We have not been willing to put our priorities properly. We have not been willing to say ... "Hey Russia, we won't expand NATO into the Ukraine and Georgia, right next to your borders, if you cooperate with us on Iran." ... I think Iran and Israel are a hell of a lot more important...
