  8. Ha. Very snappy. So much spent for the same. Lets hope they realize compromise doesn't have to be a dirty word.

  11. Maybe the balance of power is unchanged, but the endorsement of Obama, no matter how slim marks a change in elector expectations and that must be healthy if hard decisions are to be made and supported.

  16. Audrey, I guess it's not just in the election but in anything that people always strain to maintain the status quo. Thanks for sharing!
