This space has been politically silent*, from a national perspective, for the most part since President Obama took office. With the latest polls showing 47 apiece, it may be time to get out the crank and get the Lizzie running.
My first salvo of this season is going to be simply this observation. There are equal numbers on both sides and there are fewer undecided than ever before. That's my opinion, not necessarily the facts. If any candidate is going to see much of a swing, I think it has to be Romney. People like me, who supported Obama in 2008, may still be polling for Obama, which I would if asked today, but are susceptible to hopping on the Romney bandwagon.
*i have mentioned ObamaCare and its impact on Catholics and not a whole lot else.
