#1 Dems nervous, GOP upbeat as vote nears10-30-2012, 12:41 PMThere's no shortage of their kind in the politically bluest parts of California. Liberals so freaked out about the prospect of President Obama losing his re-election bid that they can't sleep at night. Can't talk about anything else. Can't stop parsing the latest polls.
David Plouffe, one of President Obama's top campaign strategists, has a word for supporters he feels are needlessly fretful: bed wetters.
"Oh, I think I'm worse than that," Kay Edelman said.
For the past several weeks, the 60-year-old San Francisco resident has frequently bolted awake in the middle of the night, in "a panic attack," she said. She darts for her computer and checks the latest polls. Some days she's so distraught that she can't exercise.
Every morning, she gets e-mails from friends who've been just as sleepless. Most are so tense, they can croak out only a few words. "Very anxious." "Worried."
"Nothing more needs to be said," said Edelman, a retired educational administrator.
I wonder what her DU name is.

Some people seem to have way too much emotional investment on who sits in the White House. I wasn't happy about Obama winning in 2008 but I didn't lose any sleep over it. If by some miracle he wins next Tuesday I won't be happy but I will not be contemplating suicide over the issue. Life goes on for me pretty much the same no matter who is in office. The main difference will be who much money the government is going to let me keep.“I have learned now that while those who speak about one's miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.”
God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to suffer no evil to exist.
