Via Dvice, do I really need to explain this one? Not so long ago, my friends, the target seemed small and very far away. Reaching it felt impossible at that distance, especially with treacherous political winds swirling and threatening to blow us off course. And yet here we are, just 17 days away — and suddenly we’re close enough to see the X on the field. I think we’re going to make it. And so, apparently, do most Democratic insiders.

Truly stupendous video here. Don’t watch unless you have a cast-iron stomach, though.
