Bill Kristol, speaking on Fox News shortly after all the networks called the race for Barack Obama:

He's going to way exceed Bush in 2004; he'll probably have a slightly higher percentage ... An amazing achievement. He probably will get the highest percentage of the vote of any nonincumbent running for president since Eisenhower in 1952, and he will be in a very powerful position.
