Campaigning for Obama in Ohio

I arrived in my hometown, Cincinnati, Friday morning. After a nap and nice lunch with my Aunt and election co-conspirator, I reported to the Walnut Hills Barack Obama campaign office. I met volunteers from Georgia, Texas, Bakersfield, all over. I was asked to make phone calls, mostly to Obama supporters, asking them to volunteer. Then I learned out to use the database system....more

Ways Mitt Romney Is More Juvenile than my Preschoolers

I think the title here speaks for itself. No introduction needed.1) He rewrites history.My girls will say, "Hey, remember when you said you were going to give me a lollipop?" When I said, "I'll give you a lollipop tomorrow after breakfast, if you behave."Romney takes it a step further.He'll straight up claim that the Obama administration is trying to spread misperceptions about him by saying he doesn't care about 100 percent of the people.

A Debate Wish List for President Obama

I live in Ohio. That alone should induce pity, given that we're exactly 36 days from the November 6 general election (early voting started today as well).  You may think you know what it's like to be subjected to literally tens of thousands of political ads a week but, I'm just saying? I highly doubt it. I don't even watch broadcast television, but they get me when I turn on cable. And when I am avoiding cable, they get me in the banner ads - on every kind of website you can imagine, there they are. Then, there's the mailbox, and my email inbox, and the yard signs.My ace in the hole for putting up with this stuff is the fact that I've run for office before and was very well-prepared. Although I didn't have to debate anyone for a seat on my city council for a community of 6,000, I did have to learn how to speak extemporaneously and still sound authentic. On the third hand, I also knew in my head that I had messages to get across and points to make. So when I watch a debate, you can bet that I'm watching to see how the candidates walk these lines too. ...more
