The protection racket

I think many of these "everything is good for McCain" stories essentially boil down to one thing--New Hampshire. A lot of big media were totally convinced that Obama was about to run the table, and they got burnt. With Obama not opening up a 15 point lead (frankly I don't think any Dem nominee would be leading by more, right now) reporters are scared that this will shift the other way. It's insurance coverage, no?
