"Obama in Danger?" (with video)

NOW (PBS), video (09:00):
Are tactical mistakes by Obama going to cost him the election? Maybe, says psychologist and Democratic political consultant Drew Westen. The author of "The Political Brain," talks to NOW's David Brancaccio about how appealing to voters' emotions reaps bigger electoral rewards than hammering home policy proposals. Westen is a Professor of Psychology at Emory University and the founder of Westen Strategies, LLC, a political and corporate consulting firm.

Here are my thoughts: I think that many of us saw how bad McCain was on stage and got overconfident.

Obama told us it would be very, very difficult, and it is.

But let's look at it realistically: McCain has a razor thin lead right now, and it is a lead that he is NOT expanding on. Mind you, that is after having a hugely successful week.

This one is a long way from being over.
