I told you I had a bad feeling: WA recount said to swap winner

The head of the state Democratic Party said late yesterday that recount results from King County give Democrat Christine Gregoire an eight-vote victory in the closest governor's race in state history.

Neither King County nor the Republican party could confirm the hand recount results last night. But if the Democrats' analysis is correct, it's a stunning reversal in the gubernatorial race, which has been hotly contested ever since Election Day.
Stunning” is right.

When I read about the Dem declaring victory early, I thought of what Kerry's people were saying in advance of Nov. 2nd, that if it was close, they'd declare victory, this when they'd give the perception that they won when the recount took place.
