Tonight's SMASH ending draws a striking parallel to today's political Presidential contest [View all]

In a classic struggle of Good versus Evil, Good triumphed despite the depths of adversity thrown against it at a pivotal moment in the SMASH season finale. The story of two performers competing for the lead role in a musical based upon the late Marilyn Monroe, the understudy Karen Cartwright rose from the depths of despair because both her amazing talent and her grounded core championed the challenge. Against all odds, she delivered a dazzling triumph against the scheming Ivy.

With my admitted political core being solidly planted in the Democratic field, when the NBC hit program ended this evening, I caught The Ed Show re-broadcast. I could not help but think our political contest is the same story in a different arena. One player has a grounded core and his opponent has a do whatever it takes to win mantra (DWIT).*

Our political season has a six-month show remaining before the curtain falls. How will it end?

My gut tells me there is still a lot of good in this Country and its voting citizens. I believe when the pivotal moment arrives, our composite core will triumph over the chameleon and his base. I have to believe this because the opposite is unthinkable. When the season ends for this political contest, the Republicans will have a "bombshell" to explain to their financial investors....

*DWIT is the rumored Republican motto for Election 2012. "Win at all costs" was the Republican motto during Election 2000. Sounds synonymous to me.
