Our election prediction.

This magpie's is below. If we're real nice, maybe Mary, Natasha, and Norman will add their predictions after ours.

Readers are encouraged to put their own predictions in the comments.

Magpie:

— Kerry over Dubya, 52% to 47%. Nader will get 1% — some people never learn.
— Kerry's electoral votes will be somewhere in the 290s
— A tied US Senate
— The Democrats up 5 seats in the House.

I want to give my prediction but....
I don't want to jinx it.

May the Goddess give us strength to recover from this nightmare.

Magpie - I'm terrible at predictions. But I'm sure praying for a huge Kerry win, both Electoral College and popular vote.

It's bad luck to make predictions. OTOH, maybe it's bad luck to believe in omens. Either way, as per the West Wing, you go outside right now to turn around three times, curse, and spit. Go!
