An Election Eve Pep Talk

Be at peace, my conservative chums, for something big this way comes.

Who knows what to make of the weighting of the polls and the assumptions as to who will vote?  Who knows the depth and breadth of each party’s turnout efforts?  Among the wisest words spoken this cycle were by John Dickerson of CBS News and Slate, who said, in a conversation the night before the last presidential debate, that he thought maybe the American people were quietly cooking something up, something we don’t know about.

I think they are and I think it’s this: a Romney win.

All the vibrations are right. A person who is helping him who is not a longtime Romneyite told me, yesterday: “I joined because I was anti-Obama—I’m a patriot, I’ll join up.  But now I am pro-Romney.” Why? “I’ve spent time with him and I care about him and admire him. He’s a genuinely good man.” Looking at the crowds on TV, hearing them chant “Three more days” and “Two more days”—it feels like a lot of Republicans have gone from anti-Obama to pro-Romney.

Something old is roaring back.

A former political figure who’s been in Ohio told me this morning something is moving with evangelicals, other church-going Protestants and religious Catholics.  He said what’s happening with them is quiet, unreported and spreading: They really want Romney now, they’ll go out and vote, the election has taken on a new importance to them.

I suspect both Romney and Obama have a sense of what’s coming, and it’s part of why Romney looks so peaceful and Obama so roiled.  Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal

Sleep tight, everyone.

    This man deserves the win. At Red Rocks, it was magical and I’m sure this is being felt at all the rallies. Peggy Noonan I think has finally changed direction, trying to resurrect Obama’s magic from four years ago. She was a Conservative until Obama came along, but he used her and dumped her like he does all his acquaintances, she has finally come to her senses, thank God. Go, Mitt!
