Watch the McCain campaign. Can they get enough public data to make the argument that they are closing the race? Are they narrowing the margins enough in the battleground states to be able to say that they have a good chance to win this election? Watch to see if they get that data and if they convince the media that it’s the right narrative.
Watch the Senate and House races. Lots of contests are still very competitive. Watch to see the resource allocation and what kind of arguments there are on both sides about how many seats the Democrats will be able to gain.
Watch the last minute TV and radio interviews by both candidates and their key surrogates. McCain and Obama will both be interviewed on ESPN during halftime of “Monday Night Football.” Watch to see if any of that gains any traction, shakes up the dynamics or dominates things in a way that affects the final outcome.
So we've compared Ukraine-Russia to every conflict known to man except the Dune trilogy. Can someone please get started on that?—

The very active account anonymously curates the latest news surrounding international relations and national security, specifically regarding conflict. The feed, which rarely deviates from tweeting traditional headlines, pulls from hundreds of political, security and intelligence sources to find and tweet the nuggets its followers don’t necessarily know they need to know. The most interaction you’ll have with it is a whole lot of favorites. —Andrew Katz
