The art of not saying it

I watched CNN with family last night until it was clear Obama had won. I found it particularly funny that the fellow walking through the counties on CNN, John King, well before the projected victory, managed to find so many different ways to communicate that Romney had lost – without saying it out loud. It’s very difficult for the governor to win, it’s hard to see a way forward, etc. It reminded me of Erasmus’s exercises on saying the same thing in dozens of different ways.
