Every Picture Tells a Story

THE ELECTION RESULTS ARE STILL COMING IN, but I find it interesting that CNN.com has very quietly communicated John McCain's fading optimism and Obama's rising confidence. As more states have fallen for Obama, they've changed Obama's picture from "hopeful" to "triumphant" (complete with American flag behind) while McCain's picture has gone from "happy and confident" to "I'm mildly amused...not disappointed."

Here's the CNN.com graphic at 6 pm Pacific Time.

And here's the CNN.com graphic just 45 minutes later.

Guess that's what losing Ohio does to a guy.

I'm curious if they have a picture of McCain crying into a towel for later this evening.
