    This handout photo provided by NOAA, taken Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012, shows post-tropical storm Sandy off the East Coast of the US. Campaign 2012 is rich with images that conjure the seriousness and silliness that unfold side-by-side in any presidential race. Who could have predicted that a superstorm would overshadow and scramble the presidential campaign in its final days? President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney revised and re-revised their campaign schedules as Hurricane Sandy, a most unlikely October surprise, barreled up the East Coast and then roared ashore in New Jersey.

    FILE - In this Feb. 14, 2012, file photo, Sake, a pug, center, is carried in a backpack by his owner Tate Hausman of Brooklyn during a protest aimed at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in New York, outside Madison Square Garden, where the Westminster dog show is taking place. Campaign 2012 is rich with images that conjure the seriousness and silliness that unfold side-by-side in any presidential race. Remember all the talk about Romney putting Seamus the dog in a crate on top of the car for a family trip to Canada years ago? Romney's fans thought it was a fun way to humanize the button-down corporate candidate. A lot of dog lovers were not amused. And the revelation that the dog developed internal issues that required both the car and dog to be hosed off created a visual image that is best forgotten quickly. (AP Photo/Ginger Tidwell, File)

    FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama is picked-up and lifted off the ground by Scott Van Duzer, left, owner of Big Apple Pizza and Pasta Italian Restaurant during an unannounced stop in Ft. Pierce, Fla. Campaign 2012 is rich with images that conjure the seriousness and silliness that unfold side-by-side in any presidential race. It's not everyone who gets to hoist a president like a sack of potatoes. Van Duzer sent the president airborne with a giant bear hug when Obama stopped by his restaurant in Fort Pierce, (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)

Campaign 2012 is rich with images that conjure the seriousness and silliness that unfold side-by-side in any presidential race. Aww, who didn't smile and do a double-take when Malia and Sasha Obama walked on stage at the Democratic convention to join their mom and dad after the president's speech. The girls looked so much more poised and mature than when they stood on the convention stage four years earlier. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)

    FILE - In this Aug. 30, 2012 file photo, actor Clint Eastwood speaks to an empty chair while speaking to delegates at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Campaign 2012 is rich with images that conjure the seriousness and silliness that unfold side-by-side in any presidential race. Sad to say, Eastwood's rambling conversation with an empty chair representing Obama during the GOP convention may well be the single most memorable moment of the 2012 presidential campaign. And the only candidate in that tableau was invisible. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)

    FILE - This Oct. 29, 2012, file photo shows Adrian Green, wearing a 47 percent shirt chanting at a campaign rally for President Barack Obama, before former President Bill Clinton spoke, at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown, Ohio. Campaign 2012 is rich with images that conjure the seriousness and silliness that unfold side-by-side in any presidential race. Nobody was laughing when an amateur video surfaced in September in which Romney seemed to dismiss 47 percent of Americans during remarks at a closed-door fundraiser earlier in the campaign. The fact that the video was surreptitiously recorded from the back of the room made it all the more juicy. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)

    FILE - This Oct. 11, 2012 file photo shows Vice President Joe Biden reacts to a question during the vice presidential debate with Republican vice presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., at Centre College in Danville, Ky. Campaign 2012 is rich with images that conjure the seriousness and silliness that unfold side-by-side in any presidential race. The debates offered viewers a collage of images that traced the rhetorical highs and lows. Think of Obama's downcast eyes and pursed lips during the Romney smackdown that was the first debate.

The early border skirmishes of Campaign 2012 are reviving questions about one candidate's former pastor and shining a spotlight on the other's high school hijinks. Can a fresh round of questions about President Barack Obama's birth certificate be far behind? (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
