When you go and vote today, be guided by these two thoughts. The Supreme Court and The Rest of The World.
I suspect when my life is over I will have had two opportunities to vote in a presidential election for a black man, and I intend to take both of them.
What's it gonna be, Mitt? Dirty politics or an honest preacher's life? You can't have it both ways. Stand in your truth for once. We'd all appreciate it more.
It's likely that the political advisors, handlers, and speechwriters know that Americans have been casting our votes for hope for decades now -- and engineer the campaigns to maximize it.
537 people decided the fate of the election in 2004. If it comes down like that again, why not be one of them?
Mitt Romney will string together a winning coalition with victories in states ranging from Virginia to Colorado, capturing the popular vote by nearly two points and a sizeable majority of electoral votes, making him the 45th President of the United States.
No matter what you have heard, this is not the most important election we have ever had, at least it's not the only "most important election we have ever had." We had one in 2008, 2004, 2000, 1996, in fact, every four years for as long as I can remember.
I challenge you to get out and vote if you are of age. If you aren't, use this opportunity to learn how the system works and see which party you would fall under and what issues are important to you.
We might pick up a few very late polls this election morning, but even so, it is well and truly time to list some forecasts. The model confidently predicts that Obama wins the election, with the probability of 270 Electoral College votes or more now up to 91.4 percent.
Mitt. Oh, Mitt. Whatever became of you, anyhow? Please tell us that what we see in you today is not really who you are. Blame it on your advisers or your campaign staff or your speechwriters, if you must. Heck, say you were brainwashed. Say anything.
Are you a reporter covering polling places? If so, you've probably already familiarized yourself with the rules of polling places. But what you may not know could make you look foolish. Here are a few myths you should avoid repeating.
We're in the calm between the storms. The one created by Mother Nature has passed; the man-made electoral storm is about to begin. But in the short window before the media goes All Election, All the Time, we should take a moment to ask some big questions. That's what I've found myself doing over nearly a week of living by candlelight once the sun set. Why is it so difficult for us to look around the corner and prevent upcoming disasters, or at least mitigate their impact? Why does it take a disaster to bring out the best in us? Why can't we sustain that best-self spirit even after these storm-battered communities get back on their feet? In a few hours, we're going to get lots of results, but we shouldn't confuse them with answers. Those we'll have to keep looking for ourselves.
One day to go, and all politically obsessed Americans have paper bags on standby to breathe into if their side tanks. Who votes, where and in what numbers will determine the outcome of this election.
There's no easier way to put it: a Romney-Ryan White House would be a disaster for women. From health care to equal pay for equal work, the GOP ticket has proven they're not interested in the well-being of America's women and -- in turn -- our families.
In the words of Sensata worker Dot Turner, who worked hard at the same job for 43 years and yet will likely spend Election Day filing for unemployment for the first time: "It's going take all of us as Americans to stand up and say, 'No more.'"
