Compared to the 2010 election in Colorado, this one has been mostly a snoozer, journalistically. Still, reporters have turned out some excellent work this time around, and I've listed my favorite reporting below.
Among the questions you need to ask yourself is, "who is Mitt Romney?" Is he the congenial man you see tonight, ready to save the middle class he wrote off, or the elitist who wrote them all off? If your aim is to be a nice guy, you'll never win.
The stakes are too high, the challenges are too great and the work of rebuilding this country on the other side of the Bush Administration debacle is too important to leave it to "trust us -- the details are behind the curtain in Box #2."
Ryan's views should once again strengthen women's support for the president. But when will these politicians remember that women also care about wage equity, Social Security, the education of their children, Medicare and health insurance?
Artist Brian Tolle takes our most significant "memories" of a collection of past presidents, distills them and incorporates them into an eclectic, irreverent, smart, and funny collection of "busts" of our "fearless leaders."
A report card marked with too many C's and D's is not something to boast about. Unfortunately, those are just the kinds of grades America brought home yesterday, earning an overall C- in a new report released by Save the Children and First Focus.

It's hard to imagine. Seeing Big Bird in an unemployment line would be like seeing Big Bird in an unemployment line. What else can you do for work? You could be the mascot for Chic-Fil-A, but then there's that whole Bert-Ernie connection. Hmm. Better scratch that.
Everyone's voice does matter. Don't like the job Obama is doing? Let him know. Not happy with Romney's policies? Have your say. if you think you're vote doesn't matter, think again. Voting is not only a right, it's a civic duty.
Obama's performance was stunning in its ineffectiveness. What should've been a slam-dunk became a wild air ball from half court. Should he lose a month from now, historians will mark his defeat as having been snatched from the jaws of victory in Denver on October 4th.
Left of Black host and Duke University Professor Mark Anthony Neal is joined via Skype journalists Rahiel Tesfamariam and Mychal Denzel Smith in a discussion of youth violence and poverty in the United States and the lack attention given to these issues in the 2012 Presidential Election.
In politics there is no bigger sin than disrespecting voters. It is a sin that is rarely, if ever, forgiven. You can explain your policies and programs. You can argue until you're blue in the face about how effective you are as a "manager." It won't matter.
In search of insight into the deeper forces shaping the presidential election, I turned to American Jungian psychoanalyst Murray Stein, Ph.D. Stein lectures on analytical psychology and its applications in the contemporary world.
