2012-11-05-electionbannerreal.jpg Numerous Canadians have made the jump across the border to volunteer on the campaign for Obama's re-election. Why? Because there is an element of the formula that is still missing in Canadian politics. The ingredient Obama brings is one that still eludes the political establishment.

How Canada Made Me An Obama Lover

I can't actually vote for Barack Obama -- though I live in New York City I'm from Canada and it's stamped on my passport as surely as on the way I say "out." But there is no being part of the great churning American media machine -- whether as a viewer, reader, listener, Tweeter, Instagrammer or random Canadian who somehow snuck her way on television -- without forming an opinion. Sometimes, it's even educated! As for me, the more educated I got, the more I came to realize that my support for the 44th President of the United States and his party actually has its roots well north of the border. Really, every reason I can think of to vote for Barack Obama I learned from Canada. In the language of my people, et voila...

Which Way Will Swing States Blow? My 10 Predictions

2012-11-05-electionbannerreal.jpg One implication of my predictions would be Ohio losing its status as a predictor of Presidential election victories. More importantly, this would be the first election in recent history where the winner of the election will not win two out of the three "big swing states." This seems to be indicative of a shift, where future swing states will be comprised of a collective of smaller states with rapidly rising populations, such as Nevada. As opposed to the past rigidity of the "big three" swing states, this will lead to future Presidential candidates having to chase after electoral votes in a more decentralized manner.

Media Bites: How Will the Election Turn Out? Duh -- Ask Canada!

2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpg The Canadian media rarely bears even the slightest apprehension about bossily dictating U.S. elections. Our papers state their partisan preferences loudly and often, but thankfully no one south of the 49th seems to give a doodle-dandy. And to be fair, as far as nefarious foreign endorsements go, you could do a lot worse than the Canadian stamp of approval. Anyway, who's getting the honour this year?
