The Insiders Predict: Obama

Tammy Haddad of Haddad Media regularly hosts a pre-White House Correspondents Dinner brunch at her D.C. home, and this year she added a twist to the festivities. It was a straw poll of who the media insiders, politicos and celebrities in attendance believe will win the White House. (Guests ranged from Tracy Ullman to Alan Greenspan).

The results: Obama with 43%, McCain with 37% and Clinton at 19%. The caveat: This was Saturday, two days before the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s appearance before the National Press Club. But it is telling nonetheless.
