Tonight Chilean miners will escape their captivity by entering, one by one, into a capsule which will deliver them to freedom. We cling to the belief that tonight’s individual victories of each minor and the triumph for the Chilean nation is a harbinger for America – America will get in the capsule this November 2010 and finally be freed in November 2012.

“Hope has turned to doubt and disenchantment for almost half of President Barack Obama’s supporters.
More than 4 of 10 likely voters who say they once considered themselves Obama backers now are either less supportive or say they no longer support him at all, according to a Bloomberg National Poll conducted Oct. 7-10.
Three weeks before the Nov. 2 congressional elections that Republicans are trying to make a referendum on Obama, fewer than half of likely voters approve of the president’s job performance. Likely voters are more apt to say Obama’s policies have harmed rather than helped the economy. Among those who say they are most enthusiastic about voting this year, 6 of 10 say the Democrat has damaged the economy.“

Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
