Who Knows How They're Calling These? 

As of this writing, the President is at 270 in none of the network projections. None of the networks that has called, say, Nevada for him has called Ohio, and vice-versa. Since he needs Ohio and one other state, he's below the threshold for avoiding 1824. Interestingly, there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to who's calling what. Those who've called Nevada won't call Iowa. Wisconsin has a smaller margin than New Mexico, but seems safe for Kerry?

I'm resolutely not calling this typical media bias, or a left-wing conspiracy in newsrooms. Any such theory would have to account for Fox. More likely, these guys are just being overly cautious. But while it adds to the drama, it only encourages Daschle-like obstinacy and feeds the fever swamps.

More, after I walk the dog and have breakfast, check the job listings, and enjoy a few minutes away from television and the Net. Probably about this prediction-concession business, and My Day At The Polls.
