Help Me, Obi Wolf, You’re My Only Hope.

Well, I guess I know whose election coverage I’ll be watching tonight…

As the news networks spend oodles of cash in order to one-up the other with whiz-bang visuals and mind-melting charts, CNN is looking to blow just about everyone else away. As election night officially kicks off in just a few hours, the network’s Wolf Blitzer will be conducting interviews with faraway strategists not via the traditional two-pane window, but by hologram. Believe it or not, professionals in Chicago and Phoenix will be beamed live to CNN’s New York studios in order to give viewers a look at Wolf and a ghostly counterpart.

This will be either ridiculously cool or a hilarious fiasco.  Either way, it’s totally worth putting up with Wolf – for at least a few minutes, anyway.
