    Sorry, but as much as I'd like to I can't buy into the rah-rah at the moment.

    Do I think we have an edge in popular opinion? Yes. It's it substantial...?

    That's the question. Maybe, but from all the polling I've seen, and the comments I've been reading from around the web, I'm not convinced.

    We should be shocked.

    That the GOP is even able to maintain a viable parity during their current parody is something I find very hard to grasp.

    We should be PULVERIZING them, and we're not.

    What we ARE doing is maintaining our hold on Democratic aligned voters.

    Independents are splitting 32/30 in our favor. That's hardly a "wave".

    The good news? 26% of Independents are undecided. Since many of them are GOPers in sheep's clothing, that's potentially very good news.

    But we have to close the sale with the people, and we haven't done it yet.

    I am BAFFLED why there aren't more Democratic aligned voices out there spreading our point of view. If we let it all ride on Obama's shoulders (with a near split 50/50 approval rating) how can we ever hope to gain the majority?

    I still maintain we have a job to do, and that's spread the word wherever we can. Preferably online sites that allow interaction.

    That's where a lot of independents are getting their opinion, and that's where we can do some good for our cause.

    So far, that message isn't resonating with you folks.

    I'm baffled.

    What separates us, divides us, and diminishes the human spirit.

      Bill should chime in on explaining how crazy it is.
