Election Day Jitters

I guess that even experienced politicians get a little nervous on election day. This morning I was watching Imus on MSNBC, as is my norm, and during his conversation with Jeff Greenfield, Greenfield said that political reporters would spend much of the day calling each other with odd bits of new such as "It is raining in Memphis and that's bad for Ford." Not two minutes later, Imus interrupts Greenfield because Harold Ford Jr. is on the phone assuring everyone that there was no rain in Memphis. (As an aside, there has been intermittent rain in northern Mississippi all day) Greenfield suggested that perhaps Ford should switch to decaff. It was a rather humorous moment showing that even the professionals get a little frazzled at the end.
