Sabato Offers His ‘Conventional’ Wisdom
As anyone who is even remotely acquainted with Larry Sabato — or even has only seen him on TV — would understand, a presidential election year is the high holy season for “America’s favorite political pundit,” also known around these parts as an extremely popular politics professor in the College of Arts & Sciences and the director of the U.Va. Center for Politics.
Sabato spent this week in Tampa at the Republican National Convention, and he will doubtless be in Charlotte next week for the Democrats’ turn in the spotlight.
As always, he is not attending as a silent observer. He’s been cranking out the analysis, both on his Crystal Ball website and via his Twitter feed, where his gift for pith is a natural fit. (“Strongest part of Mitt’s Strong Speech: Weaved in “jobs” top to bottom. Weakest: Tried to do too much, meandered.”)
He’s in his element. Check it out.
