Barack Obama on the Cusp

Barack Obama Stands on the Cusp of History:

Here is how Barack Obama envisions his new American majority in a recent fundraising letter:

(1) Bring together Democrats and Independents and Republicans, blacks and whites, Latinos and Asians, Red States and Blue States.
(2) End tax breaks for companies that ship our jobs overseas.
(3) Put a middle class tax cut into the pockets of working families.
(4) Make health care affordable and available for every American.
(5) Crack down on predatory lenders and give relief to the victims of mortgage fraud.
(6) Bring our soldiers home and give them the care and benefits they have earned.
(7) Bring about justice and equality, opportunity and prosperity.
(8) Heal this nation, repair this world.

Barack says we stand on the cusp of history. Certainly his campaign is on a cusp. He has been stuck in the polls for the last few weeks with a steady but slender lead over John McCain. With the election in 16 weeks, this could still go either way.
