Nan Rich needs to tone down the anti-Crist rhetoric

I get it that she is a lifelong "true Democrat", unlike Crist who recently became one. I get it that he flip-flopped (and "evolved") on many issues. However, is very unlikely that she can beat Scott and Crist is clearly a stronger candidate. At some point, her negative campaigning is going to put him at risk, causing some on the fence Dems and Independents to tune out and stay home when we need them to be engaged and invigorated about getting Scott out. I feel compassion for her- I really do and believe that she'd be a good Governor but it does not appear to be in the cards for her so hopefully she will gracefully, pull back on the Crist attacks for the good of the state or we risk another 4 year Scott nightmare.

Anthony Weiner is great on Bill Maher tonight

Reminds me of what a powerful, progressive voice he was when he was in Congress. Such a shame he made such a mess of things. He really is a bright, articulate guy. Hopefully he will one day wind up back in politics...

Watching Barbara Buono on Rachel

She really is terrific and would be a welcome relief from Christie. Her new ad which is just hitting NJ now, is excellent. What will it take for get people in NJ to wake up and see Christie for who he really is? I still cannot understand why his numbers are so high. They just ejected Corey Booker after all-might this mean reason to have a bit if hope or am I being too naive?

Thank you, Mr. President. Again.

Thank you for your excellent speech today which hit all of the right points. Thank you for standing your ground and not giving in to the economic terrorists who are still, even after the damage they inflicted these past 2 weeks, determined to undermine your presidency and our country and care only about their own egos. Thank you for continuing, in spite of dealing with a completely incompetent GOP lead Congress, to focus on the values that Democrats believe in and reminding the country that "the government" is not something to be feared but something that supports each and every one of us. There have been instances when I've been frustrated with you and with some of your decisions (like giving in on single payer although I understand there were reasons for doing so), but today I am reminded again, of how happy and proud I am to have you as my President and how fortunate this country is to have you as our leader.

Anyone watching CNN now?

Christians Amanpour just had a very powerful interview Bahshar Ja Afari, Syrian Ambassador to the UN- basically told him the world knows they are lying and they (Syrian regime) has brought this on themselves. She was very direct and did not mince words.

Good morning NE DU friends

How is everyone doing? Check in when you can- we are thinking about you! Hope you are all safe and staying warm- which I fear with so many without power, will be a challenge today. Post photos too if possible! Can't wait to hear your stories- as an ex Bostonian and New Yorker, I feel your pain.

Now come the tears. WE DID IT!

It's real. Yes We Did. Amen.

Hollywood FL miles and miles for President Obama!

Thousands and thousands - line wraps for at least 2 miles maybe more - to enter stadium where Pres. will be speaking today. We arrived too late- end of line way too far to make it inside and it is HOT out-- heading home to watch on CSpan. But these are the people who waited in lines if up to 5 hours to vote- and these people- WE THE PEOPLE are fired up!!!

Depressing Miami Herald front page today-Romney ++ by 5 in FL

HUGE front page story- Romney still ahead in FLA- big graphic- lots of details- very very upsetting way to start the day. Thank goodness for Nate Silver and Princeton and the other polls showing a different story but it is VERY discouraging. Maybe the result will mean more Dems voting today and Tuesday. Going out to make calls or canvas or do something to work off the anxiety.

A new Miami Herald/El Nuevo Herald poll shows Mittt Romney beating President Obama 45-51 percent in Florida.


Mitt Romney has maintained a solid lead over President Barack Obama in the latest Miami Herald/El Nuevo Herald poll of likely voters who favor the Republican by six percentage points.

Romney’s strengths: independent voters and more crossover support from Democrats relative to the Republicans who back Obama, according to the survey conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research.

Romney’s crossover appeal is fueled by strong support in rural North Florida, a conservative bastion where a relatively high percentage of Democrats often vote Republican in presidential election years.

“I’m pretty convinced Romney’s going to win Florida,” said Mason-Dixon pollster Brad Coker, who conducted the 800-likely voter survey from Tuesday through Thursday.

“Will it be fivepoints? Maybe. Will it be three points? Possibly,” Coker said, of what he expects Romney’s margin will be. “I don’t think it’s going to be a recount … I don’t think we’re going to have a recount-race here.”

Romney is winning handily among men, marginally losing with women voters and has outsized support among non-Hispanic whites. He’s essentially winning on the issues as well: the economy, Medicare, foreign policy and looking out for the middle-class.
