re: Heilemann's analysis of the possibility of increased turnout, he feels that those attending won't necessarily go to the polls on Tues. Let's see-you travel 250 to 1000 miles to go to D.C., yet you won't go 1 mile to your local voting station. Seems quite logical.

I am sure John has thought of this, but what if Bloomberg has a Perot effect. I mean isn't it possible that he could appeal to some states that Palin (shudder) should carry if she was the nominee.

Good Grief! You had a media reporter mocking the Stewart/Colbert rally. And now you have this guy on floating a scenario where Obama, Palin and Bloomberg are in a three-way contest for president. And you think the comedians are blurring the lines of political discourse?? And this guy is equally idiotic.
