Happier times? President Obama in Pennsylvania back in 2008 with Senator Bob Casey.

Uphill climb

President Obama making his case today in the tough democratic area in the battleground state of Pennsylvania. We say "tough" because according to the NYT, Scanton's unemployment rate stands at 9.7%, the Scranton highest in the state. The regional food bank in Scranton served a record number of meals on Thanksgiving, and the Democratic Mayor says people there are losing hope. And it's not like Scranton was a fan of Obama in 2008 - 75% of primary voters there picked Hillary Clinton.What do you think? read more

"Those of you that will be 21 by Nov. 12th, I ask for your support and your vote."Rick Perry courting the youth vote today in New Hampshire! Apparently he doesn't need the 18, 19 and 20-year olds.The Texas Governor, more famous right now for his misstatements than his actual policy, got a few things wrong here. First, 18 is the minimum voting age in this country. And secondly, election day will be on November 6, 2012 - not on the 12th.But we all make flubs. Maybe he was just misremembering when he was first able to vote. The 26th Amendment passed in 1971 lowering voting age to 18. read more

11/28/11 03:19PM

We were thrilled to have Kal Penn join today's NOW panel! He was a great addition to our political discussion thanks to his time working for the Obama Administration.You might have heard him mention his work with Rayman Origins. It's a new video game (just in time for the Holidays!) that Kal is helping launch. Why? Well if you take a look at the game, it's fun and a little quirky (kind of like Kal?!) - and guess what? No guns!Here's a short clip he made for the game, taking on "the Kid" to win the heart of the kid's mom. read more
