Are we creating drama? or is it really there?

9:07 p.m.

Obama is starting to pull away .. at least by the numbers we're seeing on-line .. with leads in Ohio and Florida, even though the networks aren't calling either state yet. If he wins both, this looks to be a landslide night in electoral votes ... probably among the likes of Reagan over Mondale in 1984.

So are we (the media) creating a drama tonight that just isn't there? Some of the network folks sound more like cheerleaders for Obama than analysts.

Just thinking out loud .. but as a viewer, it's pretty amazing to watch the vote finally coming in.

More in a bit .. Eric

Eric ... Obama should have a big win ... but nothing like Reagan/Mondale.

The Gipper took home an astonishing 525 electoral votes that night ..

Mondale got 13.


That year, the Dems won only Minnesota and DC.
