Word of the Day: Obfuscate

It's the final two weeks before the election, so here's a political word:

obfuscate(OB-fuh-skayt) transitive verb: 1. To darken or render indistinct or dim. 2. To make obscure or difficult to understand or make sense of. 3. To confuse or bewilder.
Most candidates seem to have a natural talent to obfuscate.
