Hello everyone,
Here is this sentence from The Economist, and I am puzzled by the lack of anything after 'anything but'. Is it an omission? Is it an ellipsis that is corrrect?

A race that once looked like a walkover for Hillary Clinton has proved to be anything but.

Thanks for your help. I would personally have been tempted to add 'anything but this'. :confused:
