    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Legendary performer Stevie Wonder this morning expressed his love for Cleveland during a get-out-the-vote rally at Cleveland State University.

    His love went largely unrequited.

    Fewer than 200 people showed up to watch Wonder perform a handful of his hits at the early voting event in support of President Barack Obama.

    Most of the people had learned of the event just hours before the 9:30 a.m. start time. Some just happened to be in the area and followed the live music.

    Campaign volunteer Ken Johnson asked who in the crowd had voted early before introducing Wonder.

    Nearly every hand went up.

    Wonder took the stage at about 10:30 a.m.

    "I do a song. You go vote. You come back. We do some more music," he said before opening with "Sir Duke."

    No one left to vote after the first -- or any -- song.

    A shuttle meant to take voters to the nearby Cuyahoga County Board of Elections left empty after Wonder's final song, "Superstition."

    Obama and Wonder - 200.

    Romney had 35000 last night.

    I wonder if that means anything?

    Anxiously awaiting IQ47's barrage of polls aimed at refuting - reality.
  4. I am reading comments on Yahoo (article about Axelrod). Only one out of 10 or so are Dem’s positive

    I am also not sure if this means anything…just never saw such a one sided before

    No more enthusiasm for the Messiah. Unless he can turn the water into wine and multiply the loaves in the NYC/NJ disaster areas his fame is gone.
  6. I typically notice that as well UNLESS it's a union article. With the various teacher's strikes, I'd visit the comment forums and I'd notice probably 80/20 pro-Democrat with all the teachers, administrators and various cronies spewing their pro-labor propoganda.
