I guess I should have made the usual disclaimers. Yes, positive thinking helps me. Prayer may help others. Nothing magical about it. When I look at something from a more optimistic angle, it will not only improve my mood and my health, but it will allow me to be a more effective communicator, and more creative in problem solving. All of these will help, for example, to achieve what Andrew Sullivan is suggesting:

Andrew Sullivan had a better practical suggestion on Bill Maher's show: make sure at least 5 of your friends register and vote for Barack.
And by the way, the large majority of people at my work place will vote for Obama.
