Finally, convention season is in the home stretch. I’m pretty sure Obama’s closing speech will be a lot better than Romney’s, but I’m curious which disillusioned ex-supporters he’ll try to appeal to.  Will it be progressives who think he’s an authoritarian, corrupt sellout?  Or RNC staffers who think he spends too much money and hangs out with too many celebrities?

I think the odds are better that we’ll get happy talk about bipartisan compromise and Grand Bargains on cutting Medicare and Social Security than anything about peace, unions, or corporate accountability, but I’m happy to be proven wrong.
