Even though he just closed the deal in Wisconsin, the numbers probably will not add up for Kerry in Ohio. But it’s possible. And that strikes me as ridiculous. Here’s why. John Kerry (at worst, he was only about 100,000 Ohio voters changing their minds away from the White House) could easily have taken Ohio and won the electoral vote while losing the popular vote by a cool 4 million or so.
Doesn’t that seem a little stupid?
Look at it this way. Who deserved to be more depressed. Al Gore in 2000 or John Kerry in 2004?
Anyway, Bush has decided not to give a speech (it’s 5:00am in D.C. right now) so I’m going to get a few provisional hours of sleep.
