Ohio and Florida have spoken. Currents political analysts T.J.

'Maybe this is the year we run the experiment?" I knew immediately what David Axelrod meant. And it wasn't the first time I'd heard the sentiment expressed while in Las Vegas to cover last week's Republican debate. We were sharing notes after the debate, awaiting an appearance on CNN.
