We’re down to the last days of the campaign. Is it change or Romnesia, hope or status quo that will energize the base? The campaigns are trying it all and the swing states will get the final word.

We’re hearing closing arguments about jobs, health care, the bank crisis, stimulus programs and foreign policy. In the end, will there be a decisive victory or will the Electoral College and popular vote split? It’s time for obsessive poll-checking and nail-biting across the country with Washington Post columnist Matt Miller, Weekly Standard editor Matthew Continetti and Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer on this week’s “Left, Right & Center.”
