Newscast Media NEW YORKDuring his 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama proudly displayed his lucky charms to TIME magazine, in hopes of winning the 2008 presidential election, which he did.  What we don't know is whether his charms played a part in winning the 2008 election, what we do know is, in 2012, he will need more than a Hindu monkey god to win the hearts of the unemployed, undecideds and the independents.

According to the TIME magazine display exhibited for the photo-shoot, Obama himself admittedly carries, a bracelet belonging to a soldier in Iraq, a gambler's lucky chit, a tiny monkey god, and a tiny madonna and child. The monkey god is identified as pagan Hindu god Hanuman, that is believed to give powers to speak effectively.


That was four years ago, because today, the dynamics have changed both domestically, and geopolitically especially in the Middle East.  On Tuesday, in New York, Obama has his second-last chance to convince voters why he should be chosen over his challenger Mitt Romney, and his last change to tie all loose ends will be at Lynn university in Boca Raton, Florida, on Monday October 22, with CBS veteran anchor Bob Schieffer as moderator.


Tuesday night's debate will be moderated by CNN's Chief Political Correspondent, Candy Crowley at Hoffstra University in Hempstead New York. It will be a town hall meeting made up of "undecided" voters chosen by Gallup Organization to ask both candidates questions.        Add Comments>>
