They think it's all over!

I rather like Dan Hodges (which I'm sure is an overwhelming relief). It's always more fun to read people taking aim at their own sides than it is to read the same old usual boring critiques of the other side. Civil war is generally juicier (see poor old Mehdi Hasan for an illustration of that).

But one thing I do wish that he'd stop doing is calling the US election over and done with. Obama's still the favourite to win, but this is an election - and not one of those Texas elections LBJ specialised in - and it really honestly isn't over until all the votes are in. Electorates are a fickle bunch, and when  the candidates are generally within a point or two of each other in the national polls, it's clear that there's a bit more to go in this race.

I mean, you'd think Dan would have learned his lesson last time...

Is he offering odds? Because I reckon Obama is dead man walking.

He's certainly happy to bet on it...
