AS WE GET READY FOR THE BIG SHOW TODAY, I want to thank my guestbloggers for their terrific work. Back in August I was feeling pretty burned-out and stretched-thin by the election year (more even than in past cycles) and bringing them aboard — er, plus over a month in California — has put me in the best spirits of any election cycle yet. They’ll be around through tomorrow, and I may ask them to pop in more often. It’s been nice.
