"An Admirable Candidate and Man"

Win or lose (and I still expect "win"), this is worth saying.

Victor Davis Hanson:
But whatever the verdict, conservatives can appreciate the way Romney conducted himself throughout the campaign. If one reviews the primaries, it is hard to imagine that the other rival candidates would have done as well as Romney has the last eight months. He ran against overwhelming odds that might have stymied others — a biased, sometimes vicious media, the Candy Crowley debacle, suspect polls that sought to create Obama momentum as much as sample voters, incumbency, and a $1 billion negative ad-based Obama campaign that sought to portray him as a near-felon and veritable killer of the innocent.

Through it all, he worked incredibly hard, blew the supposedly mellifluous Obama away in the first debate, and appeared far more presidential than the incumbent in the second and third.
I agree entirely...

By all rights, Dick Morris’s political analysis should never be taken seriously again (heck, it never should have been taken seriously to begin with) and people on the right will finally start to view pollsters like Scott Rasmussen with the skepticism that they deserve. People like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin would not longer be their only source of news, and carnival acts like Ann Coulter would see their audiences dry up quickly. Quite honestly, I expect none of that to happen. If anything, the re-election of Barack Obama is going to do wonder for the business model of Fox News and the Limbaugh/Hannity/Levin crowd, and conservative outlets on the Internet are going to see their traffic continue to boom as people in the grassroots retreat further and further into their media bubble.
