Some Liberals Still Head Over Heels In Love With Obama | Main | Illinois: Clean Sweep, Senate Side?

Video Metaphor of the Day

Via American Elephant, urging you to vote-- particularly if you're in a Blue State or blue district and your "vote doesn't count." Oh, this year, yeah, it does -- there is a nontrivial chance your vote will end up making the difference. There are seats that haven't been polled at all all cycle, and no one knows where the incumbent is in these situations.

You combine:

1) An already depressed/unenthusiastic Democratic base, with

2) Democrats just assuming their vote isn't even needed anyway, with

3) Pissed off independents casting what they think is a protest vote, with

4) Republican voters, generally self-suppressing owing to feelings of futility, suddenly coming out of the woodwork to vote, and you've got a major unexpected bonus-damage upset on your hands.

This is why Karen Harrington just might beat Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in FL-20, or John Dennis really could -- really could -- retire Nancy Pelosi a few months ahead of her preferred schedule.
