I have a feeling that's just what might happen.

What makes you think that? What would Obama have to do to surrender safe leads in the important states and a 5-6 point deficit in national polls with only 3 days until the election?

The only thing this ad states is to not have overconfidence. If Obama is to win, people still have to get to the polls and pull the lever.

But not my Aunt Zeteni

WASHINGTON – Barack Obama's aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.

Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUHN on-YANG-oh), referred to as "Aunti Zeituni" in the Democratic presidential candidate's memoir, was instructed to leave the United States by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request, a person familiar with the matter told the AP late Friday. This person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one was authorized to discuss Onyango's case.

Onyango, 56, is Obama's late father's half-sister, the Obama campaign has confirmed. She is not a relative whom Obama, 47, has discussed in campaign appearances and, unlike Obama's father and his maternal grandmother, is not someone who has been part of the public discussion about his personal life.

The Obama campaign declined to comment late Friday night.

Information about the deportation case was disclosed and confirmed by two separate sources, one a federal law enforcement official. The information they made available is known to officials in the federal government, but the AP could not establish whether anyone at a political level in the Bush administration or in the McCain campaign had been involved in its release.

Onyango's refusal to leave the country would represent an administrative, noncriminal violation of immigration law, meaning such cases are handled outside the criminal court system. Estimates vary, but many experts believe there are more than 10 million such immigrants in the U.S.

According to Federal Election Commission documents filed by the Obama campaign, Onyango has contributed $260 to Obama over a period of time. Under federal election law, only U.S. citizens or green-card holders are legally permitted to give money to campaigns. Onyango, who listed her employer as the Boston Housing Authority, gave in small increments to the Obama campaign. Her latest contribution was $5 on Sept. 19.

The AP could not immediately reach Onyango for comment. When a reporter went to her home Friday night, no one answered the door. A neighbor said she was often not home on the weekend. Onyango did not immediately return telephone and written messages left at her home. It was unclear why her request for asylum was rejected in 2004.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, Kelly Nantel, said the government does not comment on an individual's citizenship status or immigration case.

Onyango's case — coming to light just days before the presidential election — led to an unusual nationwide directive within Immigrations and Customs Enforcement requiring that any deportations before Tuesday's election be approved at least at the level of the agency's regional directors, the U.S. law enforcement official told the AP.

The unusual directive suggests that the administration is sensitive to the political implications of Onyango's case coming to light so close to the election.

The East African nation has been fractured in violence in recent years, including a period of two months of bloodshed after December 2007 that killed 1,500 people.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said Saturday that he had no idea how Onyango might have qualified for public housing with a standing deportation order. He said he's not involved in the operations of the agency, even though he appoints the head, because it runs mainly on federal and state dollars.

William McGonagle, deputy director of the Boston Housing Authority, said when contacted: "I know nothing about it and I've got no comment."

Sure, go ahead. Keep in mind though, that you won't be making a point. McCain's not the one going around lecturing people about spreading the wealth. :rolleyes:

Obama Reports $4.2 Million Income For 2007
$4 Million of Income Comes From Book Profits
Campaign '08 Complete Coverage
Campaign '08 Delegate Tracker
PHILADELPHIA (AP) ― Democratic Sen. Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, made $4.2 million last year as widespread interest in the presidential candidate pushed the sales of his two books.

In tax returns the campaign released Wednesday, the Obamas reported a significant jump in their income from the previous year as profits from the books "Dreams From My Father" and "The Audacity of Hope" accounted for some $4 million. The Obamas paid federal taxes of $1.4 million and donated $240,370 to charity.

Their salaried income was $260,735, which included his $157,102 salary as a U.S. senator and hers of $103,633 as vice president of community and external affairs at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

For part of 2007, Michelle Obama collected a salary for serving on the board of Westchester, Ill.-based TreeHouse Foods Inc., which produces pickles, nondairy powdered creamer and other products. She resigned in May after two years on the board.

The position had generated some complaints because TreeHouse is a supplier to Wal-Mart, and Barack Obama has criticized some of Wal-Mart's policies and treatment of employees.

The Obamas reported $29,443 from Treehouse Foods.

In 2006, Obama and his wife reported income of $991,296. The sum included Obama's Senate salary of $157,082 and his wife's earnings of $273,618 from her position as an administrator at the University of Chicago Medical Center. Michelle Obama also earned $51,200 in director's fees from TreeHouse Inc., a food distributor.

They paid $277,431 in federal taxes an overpayment of $40,856, which they designated for estimated tax payments this year.

Among the charitable donations in 2007 was $26,270 to Trinity United Church of Christ, where the incendiary sermons of Obama's former pastor have created problems for the candidate. The Obamas' largest charitable donation was $50,000 to the United Negro College Fund. They also gave $35,000 to CARE.

The campaign released the returns just hours before a candidate debate with rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

By comparison, Clinton and her husband, the former president, reported $20.4 million in income for 2007. Almost half the former first couple's money came from Bill Clinton's speeches. The Clintons made nearly $109 million since leaving the White House in 2001, capitalizing on lucrative business ventures and his speaking engagements.

Likely Republican nominee Sen. John McCain has not released his tax returns for 2007. McCain is routinely ranked among the richest senators, but a prenuptial agreement has kept most assets in his wife's name. As heiress to her father's stake in Phoenix-based Hensley & Co., a beer distributor, Cindy McCain is an executive whose worth may exceed $100 million.

The release of the returns comes as Obama has fought criticism that his comments about bitter voters in small towns smack of elitism. Campaigning in Indiana on Wednesday, Michelle Obama rejected that characterization, pointing out that the couple were fortunate enough to pay off their academic loans because of her husband's two books.

Barack Obama graduated from Columbia University, Michelle Obama from Princeton. Both attended Harvard Law School.

"I am a product of a working-class background, I am one of those folks who grew up in that struggle. That is the lens through which I see the world," Michelle Obama said, referring to her family that lived on the South side of Chicago on her father's city salary.

That's really nice cindy was able to inherit a company. Really nice that she can donate extra money. Thats great. Obama just finished paying off his student loans. The obamas are not rich like cindy. I just hope that you're extremely wealthy since you are like them and thats why you are voting for mccain. I just cant understand why a super wealthy person would waste their time posting on a internet bulletin board. Obama donated his time as a community organizer to help people in finding jobs, that is just as valuable as donating money to a nonprofit that sits on it and decides how they will spend it. DONATING TO CHARITIES IS RETARDED. GO OUT DO SOME REAL WORK DONATING YOUR TIME AND MONEY DIRECTLY. DONT GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH IT. AFTERALL ISNT THAT HOW YOU WANT YOUR GOVERNMENT TO WORK? SINCE YOUR SO WEALTHY IM SURE YOU KNOW THAT WHEN BIG DONATIONS ARE MADE THEY ARE NORMALLY FOR A FAVOR OR PAYBACK FOR A FAVOR RECEIVED.
