Possible Presidents Travel: Now Leaving Nashville, Y'All Come Back Now, Hear?

October 8, 2008 at 10:00 AM | by | ()

Last night, John McCain warmly greeted members of the audience but appeared to blank on opponent Barack Obama's name, calling him "that one." He's going to have to do better that that with swing state voters on the road today!

For now, it's time to leave Nashville, the scene of last night's debate, and head to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania with vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin for a rally at Lehigh University. There aren't any tickets left, but you can always try your luck with a student ID and try to sneak in. After that, they're off to north central Ohio for a rally in Strongsville, the self-proclaimed "Crossroads of the Nation."

After last night's debate, Obama made an appearance at a house party at Al Gore's, where the former presidential candidate was holding a fundraiser. Meet Barack at the Indiana State Fairgrounds today in Indianapolis for a rally, or follow Democratic potential Veep Joe Biden to Tampa and Ft. Myers, Florida, following in Palin's footsteps and hopefully doing some damage control.

The sad truth for Tennessee is that the candidates probably won't be back before the election: Since the state went 56 percent for Bush in 2004, it's not considered to be a swing state--like neighbors North Carolina and Missouri. Them's the breaks, Volunteers.
