PM Note: Red Red Lines, Electoral States of America, How Obama Pulled Ahead

Meet ABC's "The Electoral States of America" - Who is deciding the election? -

Color Coded - While Bibi was talking red lines in New York, the candidates were in the purple state of Virginia, and George Soros was throwing some green on the field, but it was the return of the yellow flag-throwing NFL refs that led Jay Carney to declare, "It's a great day for America."

Red Red Lines - Russell Goldman writes: Using a magic marker to literally draw a red line on a diagram of a bomb, Netanyahu said Iran was already 70 percent of the way towards developing a bomb. He said the international community must stop Iran before it could complete another 20 percent, a process of creating medium enriched uranium.

The final 10 percent could be completed in a few short weeks, he said. Once the uranium enrichment was completed, he said, Iran could easily assemble the necessary fuse in a secret location no bigger than a classroom.

Even Older and Blurrier - In a video made public today, but recorded sometime in the summer of 1985, Mitt Romney explains in frank terms how his then newly-minted private equity firm planned on making money. "Bain Capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup companies and ongoing companies, then to take an active hand in managing them and hopefully, five to eight years later, to harvest them at a significant profit," Romney tells employees of Bain & Company, the consulting firm that spawned the new venture. The clip, which was given to Mother Jones by a former Bain employee, comes off a 1998 CD-ROM released to commemorate the parent company's 25th anniversary.
