You mentioned it basically JakeD- The "B" word- Bush (albeit the 41st President, whom I though did a great job, all things considered.)

With that Bush factor alone you can write off a "neocon-friendly" like John McCain. Basically the nation is sick of the way things have been run and blame in a large part the Republican party, but certainly president Bush (And he is more-or-less backing McCain). This includes many Republicans.

However to more directly address your point that anything is possible, and of course you are right- let's not forget the "Perot Factor." Ross Perot won 19% of the popular vote, stealing many away from Bush Sr. in 1992.

Ron Paul anyone?

Unless of course a terrible security situation arises (e.g. Gulf of Tolkin like event), then all bets are off.

What were Bill Clinton's "chances" vs. George H.W. Bush on February 11, 1992? Trust me, if McCain can somehow keep the far-right on board, he's got a chance.
