    I know, I apologize to you, but it has quickly turned into posting polls yet again, which I understand is not your doing.

    Popeye have you thought about what you will do if obama does not win.

    Do you have a strong heart, I am worried about heart failure. I hope you will be ok if he doenst win.

    Thanks for your concern but should that happen I'll be fine. Politics is like sports, things don't always go your way and losing is as much a part of the game as winning.

    Anyway, in a hypothetical scenario in which McCain wins, I'll be secure in the knowledge that a Democratic Congess will be retained, likely with an increased majority. And if history is any guide, the off year elections favor the party not in the WH, leading to an ever increasing majority in 2010.
