Why Should We Be Surprised?
It's obvious Kerry has lost Ohio, Iowa looks bleak, and so does Nevada and New Mexico.
So what do we get? A repeat of Sore-Loserman from four years ago in John Edwards, emerging in Boston to talk about how we can wait one more night. There is no way that provisional ballots are going to get Kerry anywhere near what he would need to close the gap in Iowa. Most won't be valid. Kerry is behind by 125,000 votes in Ohio at the moment. And yet he has lawyers flying into Ohio right now.
This is why the Democrats lose elections. They tick people off.
