Remember when Dan Rather’s gut was telling him that the media elite could no longer be the “gatekeepers” of information from the masses?
Today Rather’s “gut” is telling him that despite all indications (and I use that term loosely) that Obama will win, there’s still this unsettling feeling that Romney could pull this off. Video and transcript below:
Dan Rather: Listen, it’s Obama’s to lose here. He’s probably going to win it. All the polls show one thing going one direction. But it’s election — time for spin and chatter analysis is over. Now the people speak. You can lay out a plan that Romney wins this election, and I’ll be honest with you as I always try to be.
(Note: Pause for laughter)
Something in my gut tells me that it’s going to be a good day for Romney. But as a reporter, you don’t report your gut. The polls all indicate yes, Obama.
