I’m watching this presidential election unfold with some fascination. I think back to the 2004 election. Whether you love or hate Carl Rove, he is a genius at politics. He won the election for President Bush II by defining John Kerry before John Kerry could define himself. John Kerry is a war hero and a really bright man with incredible political experience and insights. He would have been a great president. Let us fast forward to 2012. David Plouffe and the Obama team have taken some pages out of Carl Rove’s play book. They have defined Mitt Romney before Mitt Romney could define himself. They have drawn a picture of him as a rich elitist robbing people of their jobs while outsourcing and using every trick in the book to avoid paying taxes. This is going to cost Romney the election. I also see a lot of dissatisfacton with the Tea Party people elected to congress. Do not surprised to see Nancy Pelosi return as Speaker of the House in January of 2013. Also do not be surprised to see Elizabeth Warren in the senate.
