In an interview today, John McCain "guaranteed" a victory on November 4th.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he can “guarantee” a win on Nov. 4 in a squeaker victory that won’t be clear until late that night.
“I guarantee you that two weeks from now, you will see this has been a very close race, and I believe that I'm going to win it,” McCain told interim "Meet" moderator Tom Brokaw. “We're going to do well in this campaign, my friend. We're going to win it, and it's going to be tight, and we're going to be up late.”
Given the unprecedented interference posed by George W. Bush asking the DoJ to intervene in the Ohio voter registration flap, on top of a strange AP outlier that could help set the stage, issues with absent absentee ballots and the numbers of potential voters purged from the rolls estimated at around 13 million, McCain may just have a reason to believe he could make it in a squeaker -- just like Bush, in both the 2000 and 2004 elections.
