At Plum Line on Friday, I surveyed the state of the (presidential) race. At that point, I thought that Obama had a very slim lead; don't see anything to shake that now.
Back on Thursday, I argued against a Weekly Standard assertion that early voting is a big problem because it fractures the electorate. I like fracturing the electorate! Also, I like making it easy to vote, although I disagree that easier voting would radically change outcomes.
And my Salon column this weekend is about the policy gap between Democrats and Republicans, and how it got Mitt Romney in trouble in the town hall debate.
