  •  this was always going to be a close election (18+ / 0-)

    the country is too divided for it to be otherwise.
    all the nonsense about Romney catching up and the sky is falling. the election ALWAYS tightens up. this is modern american politics.

    Biden helped a lot last night.and if it moved just a few voters towards Obama- good!
    the left was motivated and the right cringed.

    and just for the record I don't think obama really did cause all that movement. all it did was get the romney people to come home and the fence sitters who were going to vote for romney anyway, an excuse.

    It only takes one or two people to take a town, a  county,  a state, or to take a country. this has been proven time and again

    VOTE and help others to vote too. that is how Obama won last time and how he will win this time

    •  I absolutely agree but the handwringers are out in (3+ / 0-)

      force in several diaries, just as doom and gloom , even after the Biden debate. I was hoping the Biden debate would at least calm down the handwringers but it has not. It brought me down a bit after being so exhilirated last night and earlier today. I need to get off here and do my phonebanking and ignore the concern trolls.

      We have a couple of regular members who say it is all over and Obama lost. They discount GOTV and the OFA ground game greatly.

      They do not get how Biden energized Democrats and I do think it will have a small effect in the polls even if experts say it will not. That is because it was such a dynamic and informative VP debate. We have never seem a more dynamic and interesting VP debate that was such a smack down.

      Am I being too optimistic in thinking we will win back some of the Squishy Middle who are women because of what Ryan said about abortion and other factors?

      If I am being too optimistic, oh well,  I need to get my spirits up as we have 3 weeks of hard GOTV and tons of work to do.
