Historians See Little Chance for McCain

GOFFSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - John McCain has been campaigning in New

Hampshire, and asking voters to "come out one more time" on his

behalf.

He told a crowd this morning that he's planning to "come from

behind" and win the White House. The two-time winner of the New

Hampshire primary is behind in the state by as much as 7 percentage

points.

Among other themes, McCain hit Barack Obama, a former

constitutional law professor, for being an "academic." He says

Obama "talks about our economy and taxes in an academic way" but

forgets that the goal isn't "to redistribute wealth but to create

it."

McCain heads to Ohio next, where he'll hold two rallies with

running mate Sarah Palin. He'll then head to Florida, where Obama

also is ahead in the polls.
