Non-candidate (excluding the prez) Election Day predictions

Local politics bore me to a large degree, and I'm oh-so weary of national politics at this point. So here are some NON-CANDIDATE (excluding the prez) predictions for this historic Election Day:

  • The election won't be decided tonight. We won't find out who won until well into tomorrow.
  • If McCain manages to pull it out, Obama's lawyers will spring into action a la Gore's attorneys in 2000.
  • If McCain manages to pull it out, Democrat total hacks like FL's Robert Wexler will find any and all news cameras to scream bloody murder about the "stolen election."
  • If McCain manages to pull it out, there will be numerous instances of rioting.
  • The US Supreme Court will not inject itself into this election even if it comes to that.
  • The Democrats will not win a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate (but they'll be close).
  • If McCains wins the election, he'll lose the popular vote.
  • If Obama wins, even if it's very close, McCain will bow out gracefully with no legal challenges in any state.

McCain has already started with a lawsuit in Virginia about absentee ballots. Absentees there are heavily military, and he is expecting them to swing his way.

I just wanted to say that when the curtain was closed today. I wore my deceased mother's flag pin of rhinestones on a t-shirt. I stood there and began to get choked up and a few tears fell. Going through my head was "OMG what are people thinking when they see this ballot..I remembered meeting John McCain in 2000, 2004, 2006 and 2007 and how struck I was by his hug with arms that didn't work so well; I remembered the tough loss in 2000 and 2004 and the loss of the governorship to RAM; I remembered my father serving in WWII and my cousin dying in VietNam; I remembered the hardship of becoming a single parent after divorce and the taxes that kept me from doing repairs on my home because my job was paying mediocre salary and I had to pay high premiums for healthcare and right there I knew, that all I've worked for, all I've battled to keep together and stay sane through was all about the future and my kids..One more school tax, property tax, 401K tax, food going up; gas unaffordable and I'm sunk... Good government stays out of my wallet and out of my life.. I don't want a handout. I want a fair shake of making something for me and my kids and give to the charities that I pick... Easy choice. I love my country, I love my freedom, and I believe so wholeheartedly in the Constitution... With each button going down the line, I knew that my vote meant something for that moment and I'm proud to say the R ticket in my town was the right one for me and my beliefs.

Rick Davis, McCain's campaign manager was on FNS and said that they have lawyers ready to go in caes of irregularities. So I think it best to scratch that last one :-)

I admire your hope for the home team, but the math simply isn't there. While it may not be called until California closes at 11, if Obama wins Virginia and Pennsylvania easily, there is no path to victory for McCain.
