Barack, John and Bob?

Libertarian Party presidential nominee Bob Barr says while Barack Obama and John McCain are sparring over their houses and their vice presidential picks, he's picking up steam in battleground states -- including Florida.

"It's hard to ignore the numbers," Barr said, referring a Zogby poll from last week. According to the poll results for 10 battleground states, Barr was polling 11 percent in New Hampshire and 10 percent in Nevada. He's at 5 percent in Florida, though that's well ahead of Ralph Nader, the man Florida Democrats will never forget -- or forgive. Nader, whom Dems blame for Al Gore's loss in 2000, polled just 1 percent.
