"Obama Wins!" Declares The Sun News
Let me be the first to congratulate Sen. Barack Obama on his hard-fought victory in the United States presidential election for 2008. I know it must be okay to do so preemptively because Obama has been declared the victor by The New Mexico Sun News, a bi-weekly news source (that you have never heard of—but still . . .) whose next published issue is due out three days after the election. The editors had to decide for the current issue—jump the gun and risk being wrong about the election results, or be squashed flat by timing. After hearty research and deliberation, they have become the first official print publication to declare Sen. Obama's victory. Three cheers for Obama and for the editors of The Sun News. May their bold prediction become a reality.
