Getting back to tech - whether you like Obama or not, he is more with the generation of people on this forum. He does understand Twitter and social media. Romney and his ilk understand how to make money from social media, but are too used to cutting deals in private and not communicating to the masses. Those who are used to dealing behind closed doors will either push for more control over what's posted, or lose transparency totally.

Look for more marketing and professional posters on social sites. This might eventually kill the sites we know and start up new ones so people can just have fun.

When JFK ran, the was a whole big stink about the Pope being involved in US politics. (JFK was catholic) Geraldine Ferraro got dissed due to sex, and even Joe Lieberman got dissed since he's Jewish. Romney got it for being a Mormon. The sexism might go, but I think most Americans would prefer to keep religion out of politics. We've had almost all religions hit with some kind of scandal and sensationalism draws attention.

Over the issue of political nonsense, no reporter ever asked Michelle Bachman about her comment of being "submissive" to her husband. Did that mean that if she was elected, her husband would be running the country?

We had that before with Edith Bolling Wilson.
