Dead Heat: McCain vs. Obama

Last nights speech by Hillary Clinton was very impressive and may have been the best speech I’ve heard her give during the campaign.  Monday nights speech by Michelle Obama was likewise very good and helped bring her to life for more of the public that may not have heard her speak all that much up until now.  But, is it enough?  Will Bill Clinton’s speech tonight put Obama over the top?

So far, it’s a dead heat.  I ran across this poll data on

Dead Heat

Dead Heat

(BTW–why is “speech” spelled with two “e’s” while “speak” is spelled with an “ea”?  If it weren’t for spell checkers I’d be doomed.)

    If you want a phonetic language, adopt one that has had little or no outside influence. Arabic, Russian, Japanese, German, and Esperanto come to mind. English is a mash-up of Celtic, Norse, Old German, Latin, and Norman French, plus lots of “borrow-words”. Its generality and openness to influence has made it dominant world-wide.
