    I may be wrong about this. I hope I'm not. Maybe it's just a silly fantasy. But I'm going to lay this out for you and you can call me crazy, and maybe I am.

    Let's think about this for a minute. Up until the 1st debate, the Obama campaign had pretty much done everything right. Defined Romney early, held a fantastic convention, Harry Reid was dropping suggestions about Romney's tax returns during the summer. As of the beginning of last week Romney was almost beaten. We all know that there is probably PLENTY in Romney's background that if most voters knew about would turn them off. Maybe even some illegal activities. We also know that a good campaign maps things out week by week, day by day, leading up to the election. Up until last week Obama's campaign was almost perfect.

    We all know that Obama is a poker player. I've played some low stakes poker too. What if you were Obama and you had absolutely devastating evidence about your opponent? You know you're absolutely holding the winning hand. How would you play it? Obviously, most good poker players would slow play to get as many of their opponent's chips in the pot as possible. Then they lower the boom.  

    Like I said, it's just a hunch, but I hope it's true.
