It’s finally here. If you listen to media pundits, Obama’s got this in a landslide. If you look at the polls, Clinton’s got this in a landslide. I can’t wait to see how the media/polls difference is explained off again. ( Stolen election? Bad exit poll data? ) Bottom line, I think the media LOVES Obama a little too much. He’s a rising star, but I just don’t think he’s quite there yet. If he doesn’t pull it off in 2008, I think he could become formidable in 2012, regardless of who the incumbant president is. Of course, Alan Keyes was the media darling a few years ago as well…….
On the Republican side, both the pundits and the polls say it’s all once-dead-McCain now with Romney making a little noise in a couple of states. There is no difference between what the polls are saying and what the media are saying. So, there’s not much for me to watch apparently. Huckabee’s making a lot of noise, but media’s not listening. I doubt the people taking the polls are either. He peaked WAY too early and people apparently didn’t see enough there to hang on to.
On the Green side, I’m still anxiously waiting for the Cynthia McKinney/Ralph Nader debates. That is probably the most fun I’ll have outside of taking bets on how many times Clinton breaks down on camera to show she’s a caring human.
