How the media will cover the general election...

Want to get on record with this prediction:

If Hillary wins the nomination, the media will spend the entire general election wondering if young and black Democrats feel disenfranchised and how that will help McCain, Romney or a third party candidate.

If Obama wins, the media will fret over whether or not Boomer aged women feel disenfranchised and how that will help the Republicans or a third party.

These arguments will be made most enthusiastically if the Republicans nominate McCain or if Bloomberg runs.

The media is setting up a "group x was left out" narrative that will benefit the Republicans and it will work to make the general election a lot closer than you think it's going to be. If the media insists on this story it is likely to become self-fulfilling.
