FILE - In this Aug. 17, 2009 file photo, President Barack Obama poses for a picture after speaking at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Phoenix. The far-flung swing states that have the most sway in the presidential election have something else in common - a large share of military veterans who are getting special attention from the fiercely dueling campaigns. In a White House campaign this hard-fought, no interest group can be ignored. But veterans are an especially prized group since so many live in battlegrounds including Colorado, Florida, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)
