I think the next two weeks are critical. I am worried about a big Obama bump from the DNC due to the fact that Obama is a very good speech maker, and he also has one of the great speech makers in Bill Clinton as well shilling for him that week.

How much of a bump do you think Obama will get from the DNC?
I have no idea. I agree with you that teleprompted oration is a strength of his though. I look forward to the debates where I think Obama expectations are far higher than they should be. He'd just not that good. In that setting, he's like a mediocre salesman who's trying to sell a flawed product. Romney, on the other hand, has had a lot of practice this year and I think he's improved considerably. Plus he'll have lessor expectations to meet.
