"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."

And the winner in a landslide...Marty!!!


See polling results here

Watch the candidates in action

MEP's post-election analysis: Marty's substantial victory is largely due to the thickness of his coat. Voters want a cat who won't freeze to death at that altitude. Or, as our weathermen inevitably say during their forecasts, "High atop Mount Washington." More mascot primary result analysis here.

Fascinating fact of the day: The woman who asked Senator Clinton the question that made her almost cry subsequently attended an Obama rally. And voted for him yesterday.

The political circus has indeed moved on. Listening to endless discussions of last night's surprises, I perceive that the mania and spin and hype endure.
