“Hey, can you look into that crystal ball and give me tomorrow’s pick-3 #’s?”
No, but I can look into my crystal ball and see that the Democrats have registered 15% more voters than the Republicans this time around. I can see they have access to more money. I can see they have the media’s full support. I can see they’ve made huge incursions into red states like OH and MO and VA. And I can see not a single blue or purple state that would go gung-ho for Thompson. All you’ve got is wishful thinking on your part—and a low-energy candidate who has already decided he will not be going out on the road much to campaign. Given all this, it’s not hard to see disaster if we choose Thompson.
