Hard to believe that this night is finally upon us. After two long years, a billion dollars spent, hundreds of stump speeches delivered, thousands of polls taken, and 27 million 30-second political ads aired, it is still difficult for me to come to grips with the fact that this election cycle is about to come to an end.
Cold-turkey withdrawal is going to be ugly. Let me know if anyone is plugged into a local Political Junkies Anonymous (PJA) group they can recommend.
Given the incredibly tricky anti-Bush-anti-Republican political landscape that John McCain has had to navigate over the past year, it is amazing to me that he is not down by 15 points right now. But, as I write this, despite all the Obama-friendly polls, very few of the cable news pontificators are ready to count McCain out just yet. Me neither.
