Presidential Prognostications

For people who work in the news business, Election Week is like the Super Bowl.

For most of us in Washington, DC, politics is the reason we’re here. And every four years, we start ticking down the clock to Election Day. We started covering this race about 18 months ago, and now here we are, just six days left, and we are no closer to knowing who might actually win this thing. The pollsters tell us one thing, the campaigns might tell us something different. We can read twenty news stories about Ohio and come away with twenty different reasons why one candidate or the other might win.

Which also works if you are reapplying.

"It's so important for us to respond big and respond fast as local information starts coming in," President Barack Obama said at FEMA.
