    Get busy phonebanking. Go canvassing. Put out a yard sign. Donate $3, $5, or $47. Tweet and FB some GOTV stuff. Get off the pity pot and do something to GOTV for our party!

    Any one of these is bound to be a helluva lot more productive than wasting time on these handwringer diaries. Sheesh.

      doesn't mean that the race has turned. Brace yourself for Romney getting a bump in the polls, but beyond that, don't get too worried.

      As my good friend just told me, "Obama didn't seem to have any trouble with McCain, I don't know why this guy would give him trouble."

      My friend has a way of seeing past the hype. He said he really didn't see Romney as being so great.

      President Obama will have to do a lot more flubbing to lose the race, that is my opinion.

      putting up a sign or writing a letter to the editor in your town's newspaper might make you feel more in control of the situation. We actually do have a lot of control over how these things go.

      If you can't do those things, send them as much as you can spare.

      Don't worry, Obama will come back strong. He always has and while I am sure this is tiring for him, I don't see him as incapable of beating Romney, nor is he likely to give up.
