The Storm That Changed Everything. Or Nothing.

It's pretty common for New Yorkers to think that we live in the most important place on earth. Because we do. The devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy, right before the election, pretty much crystallized that feeling in the worst possible way because suddenly all eyes were on our region as we struggle to recover from the effects of the storm. And you know what else might be affected by the storm? That's right. The presidential election.

Sandy was the cause of many surreal things. But some of those include Republican Convention keynote speaker and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie becoming buddies with Barack Obama and Bloomberg coming right out and endorsing Obama for re-election. It's hard to say if this will really effect the votes of people in Ohio, but we will see soon enough.
