Firewall Breach: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan in Play
If you don't think seven days is time enough time to swing an election, ask George W. Bush about that. A week out in 2000, he was looking like our next president, when news of a youthful drunk driving charge was dropped into his lap the Thursday before Election Day. The polls flipped, and Bush ended up losing the national popular vote. It's just a fact that seven days is forever in politics, and today the race is officially on for the once-safe states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania -- with plenty of time to win both.
