I'm trying to imagine what Barack Obama messing up would look like -- I must be a true Independent, because, in some strange way, I'd be curious to see that -- by being too snippish? Too remote? A Michael Dukakis booted rape question-like blunder? Asked a question that calls for emotion and he doesn't show it? I just can't see it happening -- Obama's just too cool, too professional and smart. Whereas it dwarfs the imagination the various ways Mitt Romney can mess up. Still, I'm sure he'll surprise us. Well, almost sure. That's the beauty of real life -- it always dwarfs what we imagine for it ahead of time.
