6 weeks to go, 6 weeks ago...

6 more weeks until Election Day, with debates, world series, football, Halloween, etc. all to come before the voting concludes and the tallies made.

6 weeks ago though, the world's eyes were fixated on Michael Phelps as the Russians were accused of acting like Soviets again, prompting many young Americans to ask: "What are Soviets?". the blogs were filled with PUMA's anticipating a showdown in Denver. Rumours swirled that Musharraf might resign, the DOW lost over 100 points... in a week, the U.S. still had investment banks, and only the hardest core politicophiles knew whointhehell the Governor of Alaska was.

6 weeks is a long, long time.
