An observation:

This election would be much more interesting to watch if we hadn’t known more or less what the results would be two months ago.

Pundits sometimes use metaphors of sporting events like football games and horse races when discussing elections. Frankly, if elections were anywhere near that unpredictable, people would be far more interested and voter turnout would be much higher.

Of course, our political system really ought to be compared to a sports league that only has two teams in it… I don’t suppose that would be very interesting either.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
