President Obama is gonna get reelected.  I have no doubts on that front.

It's been easy to ignore DK over the last 10 days since I've been busy cramming various bits of anatomy and physiology into a brain that is only suitable for rational subjects like material science and mechanical engineering.  It has not been a happy transition, but it has been a welcome distraction from the many folks who have declared Barack Obama to be the second coming of Walter Mondale.

Seriously?  Where do we get these folks?  They seem to require endless hand-holding and constant reassurance that everything is gonna work out.  It's like dealing with my demented grandmother who's afraid of having the window open for fear she's gonna be raped.

My only thought has been "thank god I have something else important I can focus on, other than the insta-polls by CNN."

Hopefully, this place will get back to its normal self soon, at which point I'll join back in, (after mid-terms, that is).

BO is gonna win.  We'll keep the Senate and we have a decent shot at picking up some House seats..maybe even getting Nancy back into the driver's seat.

Buck up.

It's gonna get better.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
