That's quite a compilation... but at this point in the election, the only one that struck a chord with me is 'Election Is All About the Ground Game (http://www.suntimes.com/news/washington/15845132-452/obama-vs-romney-is-all-about-the-ground-game.html) - Laura Washington, Chicago ST'

I suspect she's right on the money.... the 'get out the vote' strategies will probably be a big part of the final outcome.

I made the same point in the debate thread and you just wanted to argue with me: claiming I was just "making this stuff up". Gotta laugh. Sorry, I will leave you alone now.

IF you are looking for an aggregation of the latest, greatest opinions. . .who in their right mind would do such a thing?

Where you been Y? Nate Silver and his organization, RCP, has been discussed on this site many, many times. Well, it's nice you have finally broken the Faux News habit. But remember, your political allies were not so fond of RCP last month when it showed Obama ahead by 50 or so electoral votes.
And electoral votes is what this game is about.

I know they've been discussed. I just enjoy their daily list of opinions.

Just for clarification, Nate Silver's site is FiveThirtyEightBlog (http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com). RCP is a different site with a similar purpose: to aggregate poll results and related news.
