Winding Up for Winding Down

Can I get a countdown widget on how long until this presidential election is over?

Thank you.

Now, I'd like to post a link to an article on, "Obama's prime-time ad skips over budget realities," that was put out on the AP wire. I'm kind of surprised by this (not that there was spin in the politician's informercial); rather, that the AP covered this article from a decidedly anti-Obama perspective. That seems kind of weird coming from the mainstream media.

To balance out all of this presidential ballyhoo ("Here are vague promises that will be difficult to measure whether or not I actually kept them"), check out this advertisement from incumbent Indiana governor Mitch Daniels.

That's refreshing... a politician makeing a promise that can be objectively measured (and a relatively good plan to boot).
