The Daily Telegraph’s blogger Dan Hodges has a post titled “Mitt Romney’s campaign is finally admitting to itself that the election has slipped away” that is intriguing. Is this a case of a journalist seeing things through his own prism, putting two and to together, picking up on a trend or just a chronicle of the pressures of the final high-stakes day of a close campaign? Some quotes — and you decide:
When a political campaign reaches the end, discipline starts to fray. People are exhausted, both physically and mentally, and they begin to drop their guard.
Following on from the briefing from Paul Ryan advisors about his post-election plans yesterday, there’s another interesting article I’ve just spotted that was posted on Saturday by Jan Crawford of CBS news, who is travelling with the Romney camp.
Crawford starts by noting the change in disposition of Mitt Romney’s wife Ann:
“Delivering a basket of baked goods to the press on the campaign plane this morning before takeoff for Iowa, Ann Romney – normally relentlessly sunny and confident – appeared emotional, almost vulnerable, as she reminisced about the all consuming campaign and reflected on its uncertain closing days.”
