Place you're predictions here.  Who do you think's going to win the elections and what will the percentage be?

Nov 4, 2008 9:40 am

Even though I'm voting for McCain, I'm going to predict:


Obama 49%
McCain 47%
Nov 4, 2008 10:27 am

Obama and McCain will conceed by 10:30pm at the latest.. I won't put percentage numbers down, because it doesn't matter, popular election doesn't make the president, it is the electoral college(Remember Gore v Bush, won popular, lost presidency).. First to 270 electoral wins..

Yeah, but it's just for fun. 
 
I'm going to get my free Starbucks coffee now!

I've already had 2 free coffees from SBUX this morning.  I'm getting my third when I leave the office in an hour or so.
 
It's easy when you live in a place where Starbucks is on every corner...literally.

haha, you're going to be wired.  I'd never pay $5 for a cup of coffee, but I will exploit a free give away all day long.

Does it have to be a normal coffee or can you get the fancy stuff?

NYC?  I remember when I lived there, there would be a SBUX on all 4 corners of an intersection, and all of them were packed.

I'm about to enjoy my coffee now, then I'm afraid I'm going to fill the cup back up with tears when the results come in.

I predict that the Amercian people lose, no matter which one of these jokers is elected. 

 
The process is so broken and riddled with fraud, intimidation, media manipulation, invalidation of military ballots, provisional voting, duplicate voting, fraudulent registrations, down right stealing and ballot box stuffing that neither side trusts that we have had a fair election    ,,,,,,,,,and they will be right.
 
The American people will not trust the election process for generations because of this election.  We lose!!

After this election?  We could go back a few elections and start questioning the process there.

I'm more worried about trust in the markets.

Read 'em and weep.  We lose.   They have better elections in Iraq now.  More honesty in Zimbabwe.   
 
We lose.

Hi....from Canada. Missed the comments and chats. Prediction Obama Wins after the excitment then " the letdown ". One term and out. I know miracles do happen.

Snags...my laugh for the day , you in line for free coffee from Starbucks. I understand Ben & Jerry's are giving free Ice Cream and Krispy Kream special star shaped donuts.
In Canada we just get to vote...how boring
Just as a comment we are all in this together. Think of this ....no don't think to hard. In about another 24 months the next two years of trying to get re-elected. Spare us all.

The sad thing is that those places even need to make offers like that to entice people to vote.  How about civic duty and being a good, if not well informed, citizen? 

 
Norway, can  you give us a quick primer on socialized medicine?  It might become important for us to understand it in the next 4 years.

Well...starting tomorrow I'm going to take a look at Western Europe to see what sorts of stocks perform well under a socialist republic regime...

This is very....



Yes, but this country was strong enough to survive Jimmy Carter, we'll get through Barack Obama....

Just remember this in 2 years when the mid-term elections come up.  Don't get apathetic.

Hopefully the media will still be allowed to broadcast the news by then....if the Obama Ministry of Information doesn't put a ban on that.

Today, for the first time in my life, I have lost faith in my country.  Are more than 50% of the people really this stupid?  See what 35+ years of the education process dominated by the teachers' union has gotten us?  I'm sick--just sick!
