    credentials, but, yes, he seems like the "face guy."  That argument only gets you so far - why didn't he have competent underlings doing the real work of his campaign?  They once sent us a cake on Obama's birthday saying that Obama didn't bake that cake, which was factually accurate, and did things like tweet out pictures of their vols all reading the Des Moines Register endorsement with idle phones right in front of them.  They thought they were winning because they had more yard signs.  Really.  

    As for Sheldon Adelson, I've thought that his political donation was a combination of trying to get a pass for his FCPA violations and guerrilla marketing for his casinos - he's a good guy to bet against.  Also, inexperienced people with large egos and a lot of money were easy marks for consultants who wanted a percentage of tv ad buys; no real incentive to build infrastructure in battleground states.  Adelson, however, might have profited from building a grass roots organization in Nevada.

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
