John Hinderaker uses pop culture and baseball refs in this political analysis:
If this year's election were decided on looks and style, Obama would win in a landslide--it's hard to imagine John McCain on "Dancing With the Stars." But who knows: maybe this year's baseball playoffs are an omen. Television executives hoped for a Dodgers-Red Sox World Series almost as fervently as they hope for an Obama victory in November. But it wasn't meant to be; the power-hitting, lunch-bucket Philadelphia Phillies have already crushed Los Angeles, and the unglamorous (but very good) Tampa Bay Rays are about to finish off the Red Sox, whom they bested, too, in the regular season.
Let's hope that last night's baseball playoff between the Sox and Rays game was an omen for the election: it ain't over 'til it's over.
