"Toots" and Barack Obama

Barack Obama’s grandmother, whose personality and bearing shaped much of the life of the Democratic presidential contender, has died, Obama announced Monday, 1 day before the election. Madelyn Payne Dunham was 86. Obama announced the news from the campaign trail in Charlotte, N.C. The joint statement with his sister Maya Soetoro-Ng said Dunham died peacefully late Sunday night after a battle with cancer. They said: “She was the cornerstone of our family, and a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, strength, and humility. She was the person who encouraged and allowed us to take chances.” Obama learned of her death Monday morning while he was campaigning in Jacksonville, Fla. He planned to go ahead with campaign appearances. The family said a private ceremony would be held later. Last month, Obama took a break from campaigning and flew to Hawaii to be with Dunham as her health declined.


Mcain Trails Obama

Mcain Trails Obama

Democrat Barack Obama’s lead over Republican rival John McCain firmed marginally to 6 points with support for both candidates steady before Tuesday’s U.S. presidential election, according to a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Sunday. Obama leads McCain by 50 percent to 44 percent among likely voters in the three-day national tracking poll, up from a 5-point advantage on Saturday. The telephone poll has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
“There are two full days to go before Election Day and obviously anything can happen, but it is hard to see where McCain goes from here,” pollster John Zogby said. He said the polling data over the weekend showed that both candidates appeared to be consolidating support among their core supporters — women and independents for Obama, older voters and conservatives for McCain. National opinion polls all give the lead to Obama, who also appears to be outflanking McCain in a number of the battleground states that will end up deciding the election. The poll showed Obama well ahead among voters who had already participated in early balloting, leading McCain in this group by 56 percent to 39 percent. Women and independent voters, groups that are expected to play an important role in this election, continue to back Obama although his margin is not as wide as it was late last month.




The New York Daily News is citing an incident report that shows former Knicks president, Isiah Thomas, was not breathing when Harrison police arrived at his Purchase home in response to a recent 911 call. Chief David Hall would not identify the victim but said he was a 46-year-old man who had consumed 10 Lunesta sleeping pills. Thomas is 47 years old. After reports surfaced that he was hospitalized for an overdose, Thomas said it was not him, but rather his 17-year-old daughter Lauren who needed urgent care. The statement offended police officials, who accused Thomas of trying to “cover up” the truth. The incident report, which the Daily News obtained Thursday after filing a Freedom of Information Act, says the man was found by police “sprawled on the kitchen floor” and had to have oxygen administered until medics arrived. He was then taken to White Plains Hospital Center for further medical treatment. Thomas’ name and other personal information were redacted from the report. “We closed this investigation Friday,” Hall said Thursday. “We deemed it an accidental overdose of sleeping pills. There is absolutely no indication that he tried to kill himself. It was a standard call.”
