All I have to say to the pundits and the press

Truman Laughing over "Dewey Defeats Truman"
Original caption: NOV 4 1948-St. Louis, Mo: This photo of President Harry S. Truman laughing as he holds an early edition of the Chicago Tribune for Nov. 4th, 1948, was taken by United Press staff photographer Frank Cancellare. The newspaper, whose headline jumped to an erroneous conclusion as early election returns came in, was shown to HST as he stopped here during his victorious return trip to Washington D.C. Credit:UPI

Heidi, my psychologist sister made that same comment; that this race was completely unpredictable and surprising and that it reminded her of the Truman win over Dewey, how the media was so off on things.

Brilliant analogy!!
