Clever, thoughtful Pete Wehner makes Mitt Romney the favorite and lists the reasons why. It is a perfectly well reasoned piece but I think, barring some major game changing event, this race is too-close-to-call through Election Day. There are about thirty variables on each side now that could swing this election, and predicting where each will end up in what combination is impossible. The portion of the national town square occupied by political obsessives (including TV programs!) will be filled non-stop with the questions “who is the favorite?” and “who will win?” through November. I can argue it either way and/or I can’t really answer it. I admire Pete, but he’s only laying out part of the truth.
