  • Would you just look at the optimism on those faces!

We know plenty of you are feeling down and out today as Mitt Romney prepares to be crowned the Republican presidential nominee. If this is true, perhaps it's time for you to join this crop of unstoppable optimists attempting to spread this very important political message: Chin up, people.

The National Optimists Party released this compelling video of Eve Darling (how fitting!), leader of these die-hard happy people who believe that, despite all the yucky things that come with politics today -- backroom deals and backroom sex scandals -- there's still so much to be chipper about when talking about American politics.

Watching this video kinda made us feel like we were kids again -- sitting around the living room fire getting a lecture from our great-grandma, minus the racist remarks. So watch Darling's fireside chat and learn how you, too, can become a political Pollyanna.

Now let Darling's vision of hope wrap around you like quilt made of bliss.
