If Sen. Barack Obama loses the election tonight, it will mark the one of the greatest media and political follies in history, according to John Dickerson of Slate

“This collective failure of elites would provide such a blast of schadenfreude that Republicans like Rush Limbaugh would be struck speechless (another historic first),” Mr. Dickerson writes.


An Obama loss would mean that the 159 polls taken in the past six weeks — each of which predicted Obama as the winner — were all wrong, he said.
