We often say that if it rains the Conservatives have got a good chances of winning an election. A friend in Florida mentioned yesterday that "if it rains, the Republicans usually win".
Well, CNN says that it is raining in the North-West and South-East of the USA today.
Going by that weather/election rule-of-thumb, this means that Montana may well stay Republican (and therefore perhaps the Senate) and Harold Ford can definitely kiss goodbye to the Sentae seat of Tennessee. But I would still bet my house on the fact that Cruella DeVille, sorry, Katherine Harris, will not win the Senate seat in rain-soaked Florida.
