That's the one that really broke my heart (2000).<quoted text>
Remember 2000? It wasnt over when it was over, until it was over.
I still think it will be closer than we think. I think I rad in the NYTimes 538 - which is the most objective look - it was always close.(though they eschew the word "close") There has been no real surge for any candidate - that was all noise.
2004 just finished me off.
Now, I'm trying not to pay too much attention, though of course I can't help it.
If I were Obama, and I lost this one, I'd always wonder if that first debate didn't push Mittens over the top.
Seems like momentum changed right about then.
