Quote of the Day

Romney senior adviser Russ Schriefer just said, "We feel we are in a very good place, that this race is exactly where we had hoped it would be a week out."

I am not discounting the possibility that Romney could still win. I am discounting the possibility that anyone in his campaign really said, "Hey, you know what would be great? If a week before the election, we were a couple of points behind in several key swing states!" Not just them but anyone involved in a presidential election hopes that a week before Election Day, they'll have an insurmountable lead and the other side will be working on concession speeches. Isn't that what you'd hope?
