I do not think this election will be tighter than 2004.

I think this nation is less deadlocked than pundits say I think that both sides have a mostly hidden spirit that  understands that our problems are so huge that stock political solutions seem fatuous So finally I think on Nov. 6 we will roll the dice and play the fixed pair we have already decided on But the decision we have made is on what scenario best  conforms with out honest take on the future In such an environment proposals on either side are less  important than a sense of direction A comeback team will be less interesting than a forward looking team A team that understands that we cannot forever live on fossil fuels and experiments with alternatives will trump one that wishes only to appease those who are nostalgic for a day when gas cost 20 cents a gallon The side that puts forward together with a sense that the folk who are elected assuming it is winner take all will be like-minded will win by a larger margin than obtained in 2004Stephen's Remarkable Kindle Store
