Politics — what a surprise they can be! Check out what Karen Tumulty sent me today (she wrote this in Time Magazine in September 2007)

From Karen:

The date was Sept. 2007, just four months before the Iowa caucuses, and I wrote in TIME Magazine:

 ”Up to this point, there have been few signs that he poses a serious threat to Hillary Clinton. Her lead in national polls has solidified in the double digits, and her sure-footed campaign for the Democratic nomination is starting to take on the sheen of inevitability.”

The “he” was then Senator Barack Obama!  Yes, EVERYONE got surprised…..
