Translating Hampton

"I think it bodes well for the Dems in November."

Translation: Gee, I hope Obama wins, and that he carries this prejudiced state.

Naturally, the 125,000 prediction by the SOS was off. Of course, he brags to everyone about the '420,000 Democrats and 143,000 Republicans' who voted in the primary. But a cursory examination of the primaries last year in August show 446,722 Democratic votes and 197,647 GOP votes for governor.

Anyone remember how that one turned out? And anyone remember Hampton's 'gut feeling' that Eaves was closing the gap in late September?
