Optimism, with and without attribution

David Paul Kuhn reports on scenarios leading to a possible McCain victory in November. At least to me, the article is so counterintuitive that it is almost humorous. One Republican operative whose identity required protection so that his optimism could be expressed on the record asserts: “We’re actually sitting pretty well in most states.” Republican pollster Glen Bolger is bolder, allowing his name to be attached to this statement: “No disrespect to the other candidates, but if anyone else had been nominated we’d be toast.” My own instinct is more along the lines of the sentiment expressed by my old Latin teacher who regularly reminded his students that it’s always darkest before it’s completely black.
