Why I Love Election Coverage

No, it's not the pretty charts and dazzling motion graphics trying to come up with new ways to display 2 percentages, and it's not the extremist pundits trying to sneak their talking points into whatever question they're asked.

It has to be the fact that it's the only time you see all of the anchors on air at the same time. On MSNBC last night we had Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert and Brian Williams at one desk with Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman throwing to them from another. It's like that one episode of your favorite soap opera when all of the subplots come together and you see all of the characters together for the first time all season.

So it's not just an election in which we the people have our voices heard, it's also a big party at Stefano's mansion.
