(CNN) – Two days before Election Day, Vice President Joe Biden paid a visit to foot soldiers serving on the front lines of the 2012 campaign: suburban Colorado. Early voting had been under way in the Western battleground for weeks; the Obama team was counting on a volunteer army to deliver the state.
The polls in the race's final weeks had careened back and forth between razor-thin Obama and Romney leads. But Biden told the volunteers he wasn't worried - and they were the reason: "The ground operation which you guys represent is the best in the history of presidential politics."
Actually, word of mouth is the best advertising, be it for or against you.
Obama won with better ideas, a consistent message and by not having a party of crazies dragging him down. I am not sure Romney had a chance with so many Republicans seeming to give a nod and a wink to rape and attacking women.
