Four months to go: Heading into this July 4 holiday week -- and with both President Obama and Mitt Romney without events today and tomorrow -- it’s not a bad time to look down the road to see what remains ahead of us in the presidential contest.
At the end of this week, we’ll reach the four-months-out point of the race. In addition, now that we’ve cleared the Supreme Court/health care mile marker we have three more markers to pass: Romney’s VP pick (coming either this month or next), the conventions (in late August and early September), and the presidential debates (in September and October).
And those are just the things we know are coming down the road; the unexpected also awaits us.
Just because the Supreme Court upheld most of Obamacare, it doesn't mean the fights are over yet or that getting health care is going to be easy. If you're confused about the future and you're head is swimming, don't worry. There's a pill for that.
