On the Trail: November 5, 2012

(CNN) – On the day before the election, Mitt Romney wraps up his final swing-state tour, starting with a rally in Florida then heading to Virginia for two events.

    I understand that the President will make his final stop in Iowa, or Vice President Biden likes to refer to it as OHIO.

    What a boob.
