  •  Yeah, but: Low expectations. (1+ / 0-)

    I'm leaning toward the glass-half-full on this one. The media invariably paints a presidential race as close. That works if it turns out to be close. But if it doesn't, the law of political expectations works against the loser, not the media.

    The MSN gets to say after the election that it was an unexpected thumping. Headlines! The loser gets blamed for screwing up. IF it's close the MSN gets to say they were right all along.

    We've seen this movie before.
