Orrin Hatch Really a Tea Party Kind of Guy
Saved 10/05/08 to Liberal Sugar

Who is more likely to be the victim of an October Surprise?

Which ticket is more likely to be the victim of an October Surprise?

McCain's been in Washington for decades but his past is riddled with scandal. Could there be more skeletons in his closet?

Palin is a "Washington outsider" but will her bumbling make it seem like she comes from another dimension?

Obama is a relative new comer and has faced allegations of shady connections. Will one of these ghosts come back to haunt him?

Biden is eloquent and well spoken... most of the time. Who will come out to play in October? The smooth talking Jekyll or the gaffe prone Mr. Hyde?

They are all potential targets! Who will it be?

I'm wondering what impact, if any, the movie W will have on October Surprise possibilities.

If there was something else for Obama...the Clinton's would have found it. ;) (Love ya' Harmony! I really hope their isn't an October Surprise for either candidate. I think that the American people are in a very big position to influence the next 4 years where we face enormous challenges. I think now is a chance to show our strength of mind under intense pressure. We do that by voting on issues, not tabloid politics. Voting on policy versus personality. I am not going to get my hopes up, but I do think that this year things are having such an impact on many Americans that it might be a possibility.

At this point, I don't think anything major and damaging will come out about Obama. As Steph says, the opposition has had a great deal of time to dig up the dirt on him, hasn't come up with anything, and hasn't been able to make any of the pitiful things they have come up with stick, so I'm not concerned about that kind of October Surprise. I have a feeling any game-changer will be either some event (akin to the economic catastrophe, or a terrorist attack), or yet more in the avalanche of gaffes and self-contradictions that is the McCain/Palin campaign.

I don't see anything from Obama's past coming up to hurt him - they've had almost two years to sweep through his closests and an awful lot of people have wanted to find something. I don't see a scandal coming at McCain - but I can see people starting to see some of his back story in a different light if he doesn't control his temper or Palin's scourged earth campaign. But scandals seldom are the October surprise. They're usually a surprise by the administration that confuses the electorate until after election day. Like when Henry Kissinger announced 'peace is at hand', only to say in November 'no it isn't'. I can think of a couple of possible Palin scandals...

The pessimist in me fears an Obama scandal a la Jeremiah Wright. If something like that happens in October, it will be the end. :scared:

This sounds terrible (and obviously biased) but I wish some scandal would come out about McCain so that he will lose more voters and Obama will get the edge that he needs to win this election.
