I think it's a toss up right now, with a slight slant in Bush's favor. This is gonna take a while- not all the absentee ballots have been counted, and I'm sure thre DNC will raise questions about those malfunctioning machines in florida.

I'm betting the whole thing will hinge on Ohio. Bush is probably gonna get Iowa, and maybe even New Mexico (last i've seen it was pretty close there.) It doesn't look so good right now, but let's wait till they actually count all the votes...

Yup, it certainly looks that way.  Oh well...my prediction was that a slight majority of the populace was going to favor Kerry while the electoral count would be a toss up.  Guess I was wrong; a majority of Americans DO favor arrogant bullshit.  Chalk this up to the GOP attack machine I suppose, and all the Nascar Dads et al that eat that propaganda hook, line, and sinker.

*opens up a lawnchair and sitds down to bask in the warmth of the flaims of America's President.*

majority of the popular vote, kids... that didn't even happen for clinton. Seems america loves Mr Bush, dispite the vocal minory whom thinks the contrary.

Anyway, as the one guy in the fantastic four says, Flame on!

A vocal minority with 49% of the vote. Not exactly your typical 'vocal minority' each side loves to complain about the other having.

I never would have thought Kerry would concede without putting up a fight. Oh well, maybe we can impeach Bush in a year or two.

I want to bring up this. Why is it that USA is one of those very few countries that do want to have Bush as their president?

Granted, the map isn't an official map or anything, but it's really close.

Alberta, Canada, is one of the most right-wing parts of the country. It's
the home to the Reform party, (or as it was called a while ago, the Alliance Party, which is now part of the Conservative party...) Sorry, I got off track. Anyway, Albertians are (typically) very right wing, so it stands to reason that
they'd be more in favor of Bush than Kerry.

Still, in the US election, what the rest of the world wants doesn't matter, does it? just as no finnish president is going to care about how those damn swedes tfeel about him.

To the winner goes the spoils. Now, it remains to be seen what can be done with them, and if the country as a whole can heal after this campaign...

We should note that for Clinton the reason he didn't get a majority was because of the presence of Perot. This is different from George W. Bush first time around, where he didn't get a majority just because he didn't get a majority.

The us economy matter a great deal to me. The dollar has gone from 11 Swedish 'crowns' down to almost 7. Since I freelance as an illustrator (with mainly American clients) that means I've lost about 30% of my income due to the dollar drop.

It might be a Post Hoc fallacy to blame Bush though.

Oooh, that sucks. Too bad you didn't exchange your dollars into crowns before we had our recession.
