In a round table discussion at Salon, Democracy Co-Editor Kenneth Baer talks with Thomas Schaller and leading Democratic operative Steve McMahon and Laurie Moskowitz about Barack Obama’s path to victory. With less than a week to go until Election Day, Obama is running strong, but it isn’t over just quite yet. As Ken puts it:

I think right now [the campaign can’t] become complacent. This campaign, more so than other campaigns, has generated a huge amount of excitement. Look at it like potential energy. The trick is to convert that potential energy to real energy on Election Day.

To read how the campaign can accomplish that goal, and see the entire discussion in full, go here.
