Who will Florida choose as the next American president? It’s the biggest of the swing states. And Barack Obama and John McCain have been to the sunshine state again and again throughout their campaigns. It’s not surprising, the opinion polls say they are in a virtual tie there, in the fight for the state’s electoral votes that would decide, that would decide the presidency, either could win it, and James Naughtie is there.

Trick or treat!

Halloween in south Florida, party time, pumpkins and ghouls, broomsticks and children with painted faces, between the Atlantic breakers and the swamps, everyone here is having fun, being scared.

Happy Halloween! Happy Halloween! Happy Halloween at Palm Grove! Hoo… Happy Halloween!

And it is the perfect time for feeling jumpy here; Florida is the place where elections are close and often nasty, where one presidential election in 2000 was mired in incompetence and accusations of dirty deeds. And as we go into the last weekend of this one, it is as rough as ever.

Who is Barack Obama? A man with a political baptism performed at warp speed. Vast ambition.

You can’t turn on television without being invited to dislike someone. On both sides in the congressional and state campaigns, the ads reek of anger. They are very nasty indeed! In the presidential race, it is on the Republican side that the temperature is rising faster.

Remember when Barack Obama said he’d sit down and talk with Iran without preconditions.

The reason is obvious. John McCain says that the campaign is tightening and there are signs in the national polls that he may be right. But in saying that, he is acknowledging that he has to come from behind to find some last surge. The candidates’ progress through the battleground states is with one exception, Pennsylvania, in territory won by George Bush in 2004. McCain is still having to defend that ground, because Obama’s attack has gone so deep. And here in Florida, in trying to repel that advance, Republican loyalists want McCain to go in with all guns blazing. For them, it’s very personal indeed.

I don’t trust Obama. I’m afraid, and I’m nervous and I’m scared.

What exactly are you scared of?

Of his beliefs, in the people that he associates with, then it’s all true.

Part of his idea is real Socialist, I don’t want to say Communist because I don’t know him completely. Whether Socialist more and Communist more, is equal.  Majority of the Cuban, we voting for McCain. Why? Because we live in a free country, where you can leave and do and talk, and do whatever you want and nobody put you in jail.

They believe that their questions will nag at undecided voters on Tuesday and stay their hands, if they are straying towards Obama. Now this is Florida where Democrats know how elections can turn.

So… where were we? It’s been a long eight years.

Al Gore, who lost the presidency in this very county Palm Beach by a disputed handful of votes in 2000, back yesterday at the scene of his defeat with a message that he said was an old and familiar one.

This is the classic choice between change, more of the same, between hope and fear, between the future and the past.

And he said that this wasn’t just another election, they were seeing history at work.

There are times in our nation’s history when one door closes and another opens. There are times when the hinges of history are creaking, you can hear it. Now, this is such a moment. We are about to enter a new era, if you have the determination to make it happen. Don’t let anybody tell you that this election is not still up in the air, it is.

And his audience didn’t really need reminding. The fear that we heard from Republicans earlier about Obama is mirrored in the often unspoken fear of Democrats. That one that is most difficult to talk about.

There are a lot of people, they may not vote for Obama because he is black, and they are not, but they are not gonna tell you that, a lot more than we will admit to it, because it is not a very nice thing to say. I think it is the biggest problem he has to overcome. That one that no one talks about.

Right, and that’s so sad, because he is so, ur, I don’t know, he is such a role model for everybody, he really is, all races.

Things are getting so nasty. You will, you know that the other side is they are just throwing anything out. Anything, it’s like hopefully it will stick. (Yeah) And there are some people that will believe it. So it’s important that everyone get out and vote. You can’t stay home this time.

That’s then, nightmare. The posters, it has to be said, are a little more sanguine. They suspect that the Obama army of the young, mostly race blind, and the hugely increased vote among African Americans will outweigh the old prejudices. But no one can be sure. Florida keeps its 27 electoral votes in tantalizing limbo. Obama is coming back here for his last rally on Monday night. You could be sure that on Tuesday morning, no one will know who is going to win. Chip LaMarca is Republican chairman in Broward County, in 2000, the home of the hanging chads on the ballot papers and the despair of Democrats. He says it is all about American values.

I have seen a more essential push to the Republican Party. It is not being guided by the far right and you know that the one issue voters are starting to become less relevant and our party is looking like, maybe the 70% block in the middle of the country, the middle of the road, whereas a lot of their party has gone to the left, gone to the left to the point where it is scary that the party of the 1950s, 40s, 50s and 60s from the Democratic Party that it was fiscally responsible and had the best interest of the people at heart. It’s a kind of catering to a smaller group. I guess if you will.

Is that what is going to cause people at the last minute to think I will vote McCain because it’s safer? Is that the message? 

McCain is going to be a steady leader, not gonna to be radical, either way, ur, certainly I think people looking at the other candidate and think, wow, he is, he is a dynamic speaker and those type of things, but ur, you know, at the end of the day, I think, with, with people’s ur, financial and health futures at heart, I think it is going to be some, people are gonna go back and say, well, you know, it’s a great experiment, we just can’t do it right now.

As we’ve heard, both Republicans and Democrats say they are scared. Now the morning after Halloween, children are supposed to wake up to a new day. All the ghouls and spooky things will have gone. They were saying here last night only 72 hours until Election Day dawns. But they will be long ones. In Florida and the other places on the front line where the nerves are jangling and there is a rush of hope and fear. The last long push has begun.

And we will hear more from James during this remaining 72 hours.

Who will Florida choose as the next American president? It’s the biggest of the swing states, and Barack Obama and John McCain have been to the Sunshine State again and again throughout their campaigns. It’s not surprising. The opinion polls say they’re in a virtual tie there. In the fight for the state’s electoral votes that would decide, that will decide the presidency, either could win it. James Naughtie is there.

Trick or treat.

Halloween  in south Florida. Party time, pumpkins and goose, broomsticks and children with painted faces. Between the Atlantic breakers and swappers, every one here is having fun being scared.

Happy Halloween. Happy Halloween. Happy Halloween upon grow.

And it is the perfect time for feeling jumpy here. Florida is the place where elections are close often nasty while one presidential election in 2000 was milled and in competence accusations of dirty deeds. And as it will be going to the last
weekend of this one, it is rough as ever.

Who is Barack Obama? A man with a political baptism performed at work speed, vast ambition.

You can’t tell on television without being invited to dislike someone. On both sides in the congressional
and state campaigns, the ads reek of  anger. They are very nasty indeed. In the presidential race, it’s on the Republican side; that the temperature is rising faster.

Remember when Barack Obama said he’d sit down and talk with
~ without preconditions.

The reason is obvious. John McCain says that the campaign is tightening and that the signs in the  national polls, he said, may be right. But in saying that, he is acknowledging that he has come from the behind to find some last search. The candidates’ progress through the battleground states is with one exception, Pennsylvania, in territory won by George Bush in 2004. McCain is still having to defend that ground because Obama’s attack has gone so deep.  

And here in Florida, in trying to
repel the last advance, Republican loyalists want McCain to go in with all guns blazing. For them, it’s very personal indeed.

I don’t trust Obama. I am afraid, and I am nervous, and I am scared.

What exactly are you scared of?

Of his beliefs in the people that is associated with. That
isn’t all true.

~ those his ideas is reveal a socialist. I don’t want to see a communist because I don’t know him completely. Or is he socialism or communism is equal.  My originate is the Cuban. We will in for McCain. Why? Because we live in a free
country, where you can live and do and talk, and do whatever you want and nobody put you in jail.

They believe that their questions will nag at undecided voters on Tuesday and stay their hands if that strength towards Obama. Now this is Florida where democrats know how elections can turn.

So, where were we? It’s been a long eight years.

Al Gore who lost the presidency in
this very county, Palm Beach, by disputed handful of votes in 2000, back yesterday at the scene of his defeat, with a message that he said was/ an old and familiar one.

This is the classic
choice between change more of the same, between hope and fear, between the future and the past.

And he said that this wasn’t just another election. They were seeing history at work.

There are times in our nation’s history when one door closes and another opens. There are times when the hinges of history are creaking you can hear it now. This is such a moment. We are about to enter a new era if you have the determination to make it happen. Don’t let anybody tell you that this election is still not up in the air. It is. 

And his audience didn’t really need reminding. The fear that we
have from Republican’s alien about Obama is mattered in the  often unspoken fear of democrats, the one that is the most difficult to talk about.

There are a lot of people
they may not vote for Obama because he’s black and they may deny to tell you that, lot more than we’d meant to it because it’s not a very nice thing to say. I think it’s the biggest problem he has to overcome.~~ no one to tell us about it.

And that’s so sad, because he is so, I mean that he is such a
role model for everybody. He really is all races.

Things are getting so nasty. You know, the other side is they are just throwing anything out, anything that’s
hopefully will sticky. And there are some people they will believe it. So it’s important that everyone get out and vote. They can’t stay home this time.

That’s them like me. The posters it has to be said are a little more
sanguine. They suspect that Obama army of the young mostly race blind, and the hugely increased vote among African and American will outweigh the old predigest. But no one can be sure.

Florida keeps its 27 electoral votes in tantalizing limber. Obama is coming back here for his last rally on Monday night. You could be sure that on Tuesday morning, no one will know who is going to win.

Chipley Marker is Republican chairman in ~county. In 2000, the home of the hanging chides on the baler papers and the disappear of democrats. He says it’s all about American values.

I have seen a more essential push to the Republican party. It’s not being guided by the fail or right, you know, the one issue voters are starting becoming less relevant in our
parties is/, looking like the maybe 70% bloc in the middle of the country, the middle of the road where is a lot of their party has gone to the left, has gone to the left to the point where it’s scary that the party of the 1950s, 40s, 50s, and 60s from the Democratic Party, there was fiscal responsible and had the best interest of people at heart. It’s kind of catering to a smaller group, I guess it will be won.

It’s that what’s going to cause people at the last minute to think I will vote McCain because it’s safer. Is that the message?

McCain is gonna be a state leader, not kind be radical on either way. Soon I think people are looking at the other kind of thing, wow,  he is a dynamic speaker and this type of thing
s but you know at the end of the day I think, with people’s financial and healthy futures, it’s hard I think is gonna be some, people will go back and say well you know, it’s a great experience we just can do right now.

As we’ve heard, both Republicans and Democrats say
that they are scared. Now the morning after Halloween, children are supposed to wake up to a new day. All the goose and spooky things will have gone. They were seeing here last night only 72 hours until election day dawns, but there will be long ones. In Florida and the other places on the frontline where the nerves are jangling, and there is a rush of hope and fear, the last long push has begun.

And we
will hear more from James during the remaining 72 hours.

Who will Florida choose as the next American president? It’s the biggest of the swing states, and Barack Obama and John McCain have been to the Sunshine State again and again throughout their campaigns. It’s not surprising. The opinion polls say they’re in a virtual tie there. In the fight for the state’s electoral votes that would decide, that will decide the presidency, either could win it. James Naughtie is there.

Trick or treat.

Halloween  in south Florida. Party time, pumpkins and goose, broomsticks and children with painted faces. Between the Atlantic breakers and swons, every one here is having fun being scared.

Happy Halloween. Happy Halloween. Happy Halloween upon grow.

And it is the perfect time for feeling jumpy here. Florida is the place where elections are close often nasty while one presidential election in 2000 was mired and in competence accusations of dirty deeds. And as it will be going to the last
weekend of this one, it is rough as ever.

Who is Barack Obama? A man with a political baptism performed at work speed, vast ambition.

You can’t tell on television without being invited to dislike someone. On both sides in the congressional
and state campaigns, the ads reek of  anger. They are very nasty indeed. In the presidential race, it’s on the Republican side; that the temperature is rising faster.

Remember when Barack Obama said he’d sit down and talk with
 crowd without preconditions.

The reason is obvious. John McCain says that the campaign is tightening and that the signs in the  national polls, he said, may be right. But in saying that, he is acknowledging that he has come from the behind to find some last search. The candidates’ progress through the battleground states is with one exception, Pennsylvania, in territory won by George Bush in 2004. McCain is still having to defend that ground because Obama’s attack has gone so deep.  

And here in Florida, in trying to
repel the last advance, Republican loyalists want McCain to go in with all guns blazing. For them, it’s very personal indeed.

I don’t trust Obama. I am afraid, and I am nervous, and I am scared.

What exactly are you scared of?

Of his beliefs in the people that is associated with. That
isn’t all true.

But those his ideas is real a socialist. I don’t want to see a communist because I don’t know him completely. Or is he socialism or communism is equal.  My originate is the Cuban. We will in for McCain. Why? Because we live in a free
country, where you can live and do and talk, and do whatever you want and nobody put you in jail.

They believe that their questions will nag at undecided voters on Tuesday and stay their hands if that straight towards Obama. Now this is Florida where democrats know how elections can turn.

So, where were we? It’s been a long eight years.

 very county, Palm Beach, by disputed handful of votes in 2000, back yesterday at the scene of his defeat, with a message that he said was/ an old and familiar one.

I have seen a more essential push to the Republican Party. It is not being guided by the far right and you know that the one issue ur voters are starting to become less relevant and our party is looking like, the maybe the 70% block in the middle of the country, in the middle of the road, whereas a lot of their party has gone to the left, gone to the left to the point where it is scary that the party of the 1950s, 40s, 50s and 60s from the Democratic Party that / was fiercely responsible and had the best / interests of the people at heart. It’s a kind of catering to a smaller group. I guess it will be won.

 

Is that what is going to cause people at the last minute to think, I will vote McCain because it’s safer? Is that the message? 

 

McCain is going to be a safe leader, not gonna / be a radical, on either way, ur, certainly I think people looking at the other candidate, and / think, wow, you know, he is, he is a dynamic speaker and those type of things, but ur, you know, at the end of the day, I think, with, with people’s ur, financial and health futures at heart, I think it is gonna be some, people are gonna go back and say, wow, you know, it’s a great experiment, we just can’t do it right now.

 

As we’ve heard, both Republicans and Democrats say they are scared. Now the morning after Halloween, children are supposed to wake up to a new day. All the goose and spooky things will have gone. They were saying here last night only 72 hours until Election Day dawns. But they will be long ones. In Florida and the other places on the frontline where the nerves are jangling and there is a rush of hope and fear. The last long push has begun.

 

And we will hear more from James during this remaining 72 hours.
