The Phillies won only their second Word Championship in 126 years Wednesday night.  The other in October of 1980 just before another presidential election, one featuring incumbant Democrat Jimmy Carter against Republican Ronald Reagan. 

On that night in 1980 Reagan trailed Carter by 6-to-8 points in different polls and came back to win.  Omen for McCain?  (Truth be told Carter was slipping in the polls and the only debate in 1980 was held a week before the election and that was a huge win for Reagan.)
