Election Night Predictions


I know... hard to predict...but i'm doing it for the fun.

Red = States that could slip from McCain's grasp. :) And I hope McCain has grease on his hands tomorrow night. Notice I have given McCain a lot of help by putting States in his column that he probably won't hold. Even with all of these States... he still can't win. McCain has to hold all of the so-called "Red States" in his column - Missouri, North Carolina, Indiana, Georgia, Nevada, Florida, Ohio, etc...and pick off a few more "Red States" and "Blue States" that are leaning Obama's way. McCain has to hold on to everything that is at risk...and pull off a miracle by stealing a few States from Obama.

Meanwhile....all Obama has to do is take a couple of "Red States" for a victory...some of which are already leaning his way. In other words... Obama doesn't have to do much of anything.

Watching the Republican Party...and all it stands for go down in flames tomorrow night will be pure euphoria.
