The Tell

Watch the McCain operatives and conservative pundits on TV. The hope they are peddling in these last few hours sounds a lot like the Democrats in the past with happy talk about turning out the vote among young people (cue Terry McAuliffe in 2002). Your Fred Barneses, Bill Kristols, and the like are now pushed to make these sort of Rube Goldberg equations about things falling perfectly in line for a McCain win. Again, this is not me saying anything is in the bag. Nothing is in a bag until the polls close and all the votes are counted.

But with an election closing in under 30 hours you would much rather be in Barack Obama's position.
