    This diary is overflowing with uncanny insight into the way campaigns plot and plan and Obama's is a sophisticated one to say the least.

    The word "transformative" grabs me.

    I really hope we can win back the House either in 2012 or 2014 so that President Obama can make the kind of lasting imprint he wants to make before he leaves.

    And I hope Biden is able and willing to carry the torch in 2016.  These two are the leaders of our party and I want it to stay that way for as long as possible.

    Let's win back the House!

    PS

    I also feel 100% confident in my Intrade bet and I really REALLY need the winnings to pay off a credit card and finalize some heavy duty career legwork during the next two years of my life.

    •  Sincerely glad you feel that way (2+ / 0-)

      and that I was able to contribute to your feeling better.

      Transformative
      is the real opening that comes after Nov 6. When O no longer has to face re-election, he can let loose with what he's been holding back for the past 4 years. He's measured it out, and Jan 2013-Jan 2017 will harvest the seeds planted in his first 100 days with the stimulus and yield the biggest breakthrough in the relation of energy and economy that the US has seen since the 1800's, when those who employed slave labor in the fields lost the war to those who employed fossil fuel in the factories. In this century, it is those who are vested in fossil fuel who are on the wrong side of history, and Obama is our Lincoln bridging to what's next.

      Thanks for your positive feedback, especially

      This diary is overflowing with uncanny insight
      because it makes me feel "heard" and "gotten" in a profound way.

      Much gratitude!!!
