Conference coverage can be crystal balls

Reading the coverage of the Lib Dem Conference in Bournemouth, it's worth remembering that the media viewed Barack Obama's nominating convention as a failure at the time - and I seem to recall he then did rather well in November. Here is The Times' coverage from back then, about Obama's "message being lost" and how it was all going wrong for the Democrats (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/us_elections/article4614994.ece).
