Personally, I still think it will be fairly close. And--warning; "to be sure" sentence coming!--to be sure, Mitt Romney could still win. But let's have some fun. Let's spend one column imagining that this thing is a blowout. A massacree, as Arlo Guthrie...

My biggest concern about predictions of a win are that too many might not register to vote or actually vote so the election turns out different.......

Speaking of irony, it is with great disappointment that I have to report that the very last time I saw Arlo on TV talking about politics...he made it clear in no uncertain terms that he is a Republican. One can only hope that he has since had a profound change of heart.

As for "Mitt Romney could still win," really? Pigs have a better chance of taking to flight.

We need to walk our talk, get out there and get everyone to register and vote.......OBAMA 2012 will win if everyone who can, will vote.

Thanks Carrie. I am looking forward to the debate tomorrow evening. I think President Obama is an eloquent speaker and sincere and I hope everyone who can vote will get out there and return him to office.

Romney Wins = Fresh dumping Waste of Debts and Celebration Dance of Wars. Some people would love.

Obama Wins = World of Negotiation term.

Major Concerns in passage of next four years America President is:

Majority of House Republicans = Death Ears (Can't Hear), Sitting Bulls (Less Talk), Suppression of Bill pass by Democratic. Time for Cleaning house if Obama Elected. American need a neutral representatives (Can't be bully / vacuum by corporation nor left taxpayer American sitting on sideline and hang).

Majority of Senate Democratic = Stimulated United in hands, Take Action, Negotiation.

A blowout is far, far more important in the House and Senate than it is in the White House.

I would imagine a Congress without the following TBaggers:
Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, Joe Walsh, Buck McKeon, Dan Lungren, Steve King, Peter King, Virgina Foxx, Michele Bachmann, Allen West, Chip Cravaack and the rest of the dunderheads who have polluted Congress for far too long.

It would be wonderful to see a real and appropriately large stimulus bill. Eliminating the Trans-Pacific Partnership is an absolute must. Serious financial reform to include breaking up the big banks is essential. Stopping Climate Change in its tracks (to include the elimination of mountaintop removal and quite possibly all coal mining and replacing it with a national effort to create more sustainable means of generating electricity) must be begun. Wouldn't it be nice to completely remove BIG MONEY from any power over our government? And how about clean elections and the end of corporate personhood?

One could go on and on. But we have more than hoping and praying. We have a real opportunity to restore our democracy if we will only grab it and demand it.

What are we waiting for? This is our time!

Sounds lovely Norm, but probably won't happen in my lifetime. I really hope I'm wrong.
