Time Check Please!

Most of the polls for the New Hampshire primary don’t close until 8:00 p.m. TOMORROW.
So could the national media please stop calling the race NOW???


You know I think it was great that the Iowa Caucuses finished with Democrats Barack Obama, John Edwards and Hillary Clinton in the top three slots. But tomorrow is only the second major primary. We still have the absurdly large “Super Tuesday” yet to come on February 5th, when 24 states will participate in their primaries. Therefore, it strikes me as inappropriate for pundits and reporters to start declaring a party nominee NOW, when the Democrats won’t even be gaveling the national convention to order until August 25th. It’s unfair to the candidates. More importantly, it’s unfair to the voters!
