Oh, my word. I understand why politicians might want to inflate their momentum. You know, make it seem like there is more wind in their sails than there really is. Sometimes these things are more about perception than reality. For instance, in the first debate, President Obama did badly. But the legend grew that Mitt Romney did fantastically, unbelievably, amazingly WELL!!! Not true. The whole affair was a stultifying, sleep-inducing, unenjoyable slog. But the legend will live on, regardless of what happens on November 6.
