Chuck Todd, the "numbers guy" on NBC's Meet the Press let a little air out of my anxiety balloon this morning, with his fancy-schmancy electoral map board. He shows that if John McCain and Barack Obama win all of their solid states, and McCain wins all of the toss-up states, Obama still wins! So, McCain needs to run the table on the toss-ups and also win Pennsylvania. Todd says McCain also needs New Hampshire as a "buffer" in case Obama takes Nevada.
That's a nightmare scenario for McCain, summed up by--of all people--William Kristol on FOX "News" Sunday, as "the one and only path to victory," and not a very likely one at that. Good.
