CQ changes ranking on CD22

CQ has finally changed its classification of the CD22 Nick Lampson vs. Shelley Sekula-Gibbs (write in) from No Clear Favorite to Leans Democratic.

Gee, you think? This race doesn't just "Lean Democratic." If this only "Leans Democratic," then surely Katherine Harris must only be in a "Leans Democratic" race against Nelson in Florida, right?

Wrong. In CQ parlance, it's "Safe Democrat." Or at least "Democrat Favored."

The only reason I can think of why CQ is playing it so conservative? They're too inside-the-Beltway and afraid to look foolish.
