Obama has this knack for finding the middle ground on most every issue. I don't think it's just political posturing either but rather his real inclination. He may be 'liberal', but it is a pragmatic, 'what-works' liberalism, not ideological or polarizing. Obama loves to give credit where it's due, and stick to positive themes. These are some of the reasons his favorability ratings continue to rise and that, as much as anything, will win him this election. No matter what the Republicans say to try and scare the public, it can't work because the public won't take it seriously when they see something clearly different debate after debate, ad after ad, speech after speech.
This is truly going to be an historic, turning-point election. Let me refer you back to this prediction of September 27th.
