New Hampshire will be called for McCain about 1½ hours after the polls close there. The political geniuses will note the anomaly but minimize its significance. The Obama campaign, however, will experience a sense of discomfort.

I’m glad to see some more positive prognostication threads here. Did you hear about Rove...? /s

Yes. I think there’s a history of animosity between Rove and McCain that goes back to the 2000 primaries. Plus, Rove is attempting to establish his consulting practice and wants to be seen a credible.

Rove=Noonan in my book. They both think they are the smartest people in the room wherever they are and that causes them not to see the truth.

Yeh. According to the "polls", Oboma would win in a landslide, but he thinks McCain could actually pull it off.

I’ve posted a link to Rove’s statements before the ‘06 election where he was dead wrong 3 times today in response to the negative BS he seems to be dealing as of late. We don’t need the negativity. This is going to be a nailbiter as it is. The msm wont report positive McCain results and (I think) it seems to cause a lot of FReepers undue stress.

“I think there’s a history of animosity between Rove and McCain that goes back to the 2000 primaries.”


McCain should have animosity with Rove. Rove went right along with the bs rumors about McCain before the South Carolina primaries. If McCain had won that state, he would have likely been elected president 8 years ago. Instead, 8 years of Bush will likely get us 4 -8 years of obama.

He’s on Fox now saying that for early indications he’ll be looking at various counties in Indiana and eastern Kentucky. He thinks eastern Kentucky will be predictive, for some reason.

Interesting that Rove wants his new firm to appear credible. If that's the case, he is rolling the dice big-time. It appears to me that all the Architect has done, is to take a handful of polls, and average them out on a map painted red and blue. I would not pay Rove for that information...I could accomplish that myself.

What would be interesting, would be for Rove to say - Here is what the averages predict...however, here is what I believe will occur and why.

Or, maybe I'm missing something here?

Truthfully, Kentucky and Indiana always come across with earliest returns. Not anything new. So you’ve got something to analyze. Then you look at certain bellweather counties to see if you can spot a trend away from or toward the parties or candidates.

It would be really great to hear Rove at about 9 CST tonight say that he has changed his mind based upon incoming results.

A judge in Virginia has just ruled that thousands of military ballots ruled invalid in Virginia must be preserved pending a hearing on Nov. 10th.

That could change the election.

He’s good at self promotion. He did okay IMO when he was the ‘mastermind’ supposedly but the real reason for Bush being elected in retrospect seems to be backlash from clinton. If anyone thinks he is that great then look at Congress in the ‘06 elections. Rove realized he was toast and moved on...

There’s nothing like winning two governors’ races and two presidential campaigns for boosting one’s reputation. It’s too bad they didn’t govern as well, because their record caused the 2006 election losses, and will have caused whatever losses they experience today.

If we win NH...then...whoa Katie bar the door! I think that will show us that we are very much in the driver’s seat and the likely winner!

I see your point but I still think he’s overrated. In 2000 there was backlash against clinton IMO. It would have been hard to lose if done right (which I still don’t think it was but that’s another story ;). In 2004 the security moms came in force, 9/11 brought them out not Rove. I can’t believe kerry got that many votes in that environment. Take away the societal trends and you get ‘06. Rove was toast and he knew it. He moved on.

It was at this time four years ago that the exit polls showed Kerry winning. Hopefully it will last all night. An early night would be bad for McCain.
