I suspect most voters watching Monday night’s debate found it pretty boring. President Barack Obama wanted to force Mitt Romney into saying something stupid. Romney didn’t take the bait. So pretty much nothing changed the dynamics of the race.
But what if something did? What if Obama announced in a fit of pique that “America doesn’t deserve a president as awesome as me”? Or what if Romney pulled open a panel in his chest revealing that he is, in fact, an android? And he was made in China!
Or the game-changer could have been something more plausible. The point is, what if something was said or done that caused large numbers of voters to change their minds? Well, for perhaps millions of voters it would be too late, thanks to early voting.
