Seriously, who do you really think is going to win the elections?

I’m frazzled. Is it the economy? The elections? A mix of both?

At M’s Back to School Night yesterday, I looked around the room. It was an inspiring, educational night — but I noticed that everyone, especially yours truly, looked so exhausted.

Most of the parents had listened to the debates in their cars, on their way to school. It’s all we could talk about in the hallway. One of my favorite dads in the class told me I had to visit his favorite site on the elections, FiveThirtyEight.com.

I did. Wow. This site’s founder, Nate Silver, is actually a baseball stat star.

Nate says that “both baseball and politics are data-driven industries.” His mission is to give you the best possible objective assessment of the likely outcome of upcoming elections.”

According to Nate Silver, Obama will win.

What do you think?

One month from today, we’ll have a new president.

Will Obama be our next leader? Or, McCain?

If you think about your vote, as well as your friends’ votes, your family’s votes, your neighbors’ votes…What’s your verdict?

I’m really curious. Even if you don’t agree with me — and you’re voting for McCain — I want to hear from you. Tell me why.

This Sunday, I’m devoting the entire day volunteering for Obama’s campaign. I simply have to. Has anyone been volunteering?

If you want another, uh, special take on the elections, be sure to visit Mommy Pie today. (My grandparents in Florida are not alive anymore, and I’m 99 percent sure that my Uncle Norman is voting for McCain. Uncle Norman?)

One of my favorite photos of M, taken last year (tooth missing!) with one of her best friends. My kid was born into the Bush era and raised in it. I want her future to be different.
