Eight Days a Week

8 Days
8 days.

This is going to be a crazy week. It will be crazy at the Presidential level we know, but there is also lots going on up and down the ballot. At the top of the ballot we know this will be the week where we find out just how low McCain and the GOP will sink. How much nastier and uglier can the attacks get from the Republicans? The other big question is just how 'rogue' Caribou Barbie will get? It's sure looking like she's dumped McCain and has started her 2012 campaign for president to me. Finally, this week we should see the in-fighting and back-stabbing reach a frenzy within the ranks of the GOP. It should be a lot of fun to watch.

There are just 8 days until the game changes and we have and opportunity to begin to change the world. This will probably be the most important election of my lifetime with respect to its impact on life in the U.S. and around the world. Seriously, this election has the capacity to change the world if we all unite behind out leader and make some of the hard choices that are going to be required if we are to steer this country in a new direction. It's been eight hard and brutal long years and this is the tipping point. We need a new direction on the economy, healthcare, foreign relations, Iraq, Afghanistan, energy and so much more. It is still not too late to screw it up so we all need to do everything we can do between now and November 4th to make sure it happens. If you haven't voted yet then please get out and do so. Ignore the polls and believe that your vote is the one that will make the difference because it is. Every vote is going to be important. Barack Obama doesn't need 'just' a win but a landslide that will show the country and the world that we are going to shed the misdirected and incompetent leadership of the Republican party in this country and return America to its rightful place as a leader in how an effective democracy can be.

8 days.
