"Call in the dogs, wet down the fire and leave the house. The hunt's ovah." James Carville. :D:D

I'd just love to know how he can possibly be married to Mary Matalin, though.

That's one of the mysteries of the universe, right up there with gravity and dark matter. Not sure even the Large Hadron Collider could answer that one.

Mark Steyn's an incorrigible conservatroid, but he does have a lively mind and a way with a phrase:

As everyone says, Obama wins by not losing. He looks more and more as if he's already the president, while McCain prowling the stage seeking to "connect" looks more and more like Yosemite Sam after the dynamite* failed to go off."
. . .
*A lot of the dynamite is well past its sell-by date: Two references last night to Ronald Reagan negotiating with Tip O'Neill. No one remembers who Tip O'Neill is. McCain might as well have been evoking misty watercolor mem'ries of Talleyrand at the Congress of Vienna."

But, from the same piece on The Corner, a useful caution:

Before everyone succumbs to a terminal case of inevitabilititis, it's worth remembering we've been here before. In the last months of the primary campaign, the press kept assuring Hillary fans that Obama's victory was inevitable and the shriller the media Obamaboppers got, the more bluecollar Dems sat on their hands. In the end all the King's horses and all the King's men had to drag the guy across the finish line. You couldn't replay his spectacular victory in slow-motion because it was already slower than any slo-mo technology ever invented.

Altho I don't know who said it,

"The Democrats never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity."

Scary, but true.
