Hackett so, so close 


As of 10:30:

US HOUSE Ohio 2nd Dist
662 precincts of 753 reporting
JEAN SCHMIDT 49,681 50%
PAUL HACKETT 48,811 50%

Of course, Ohio's Second District iswhat, 80% Republican? Some fantastically high percentage, in any case.

So, Bush has already been humiliated (if such a thing is possible). Still, it would be nice to pick up the seat...

And ensure an honest recount, into the bargain....

UPDATE And thanks to the wise, discerning Leadership of the D.L.C.... Oh, wait, that didn't happen, did it? Totally under the DC radar. Thank God, it's the only way they could get anything done. Bob at Swing State says this, and I agree:

UPDATE (Bob) 10:03 Great night to be Howard Dean -- the 50 state strategy is gold: fight in every district, in every state, in every state and things move. People are chanting, LET'S GO PAUL

UPDATE Aw, shoot

US HOUSE Ohio 2nd Dist
753 precincts of 753 reporting
JEAN SCHMIDT 57,974 52%
PAUL HACKETT 54,401 48%

A moral victory. And I strongly stress the word "moral."
