McCain and Palin's body language problem
The point is that Obama could lose Florida and Pennsylvania and Ohio and still win. John McCain and Sarah Palin need to find a crack somewhere else and work on it before returning to those big states in the final days. I can see why they are in Iowa even if local Republicans cannot.
This account of the Republican candidates' body language rings true - their joint appearances seem oddly unwarm.
I thought at first that it was the age difference - even at the Republican Convention they seemed not to be able to smile at each other on stage - but Mr McCain is awkward with her: she looks beyond him, literally and perhaps metaphorically as well...
