    As everyone knows, it's the Peruvian vote that's tipped every presidential election since Jimmy Carter.

    Kiwi .. very Non Political
    but
    Have to say i have quietly supported Barack for about -3- years now
    So pleased he won....and similar to our change of PM around the same time .. our new one appears to be following a similar path
    What really got me to support Obama was the Fact the Rolling Stone magazine supported him .. hence possibly many of there readers..celebrity's..those that had already endorsed him..i assume
    Also very nice he adopted Hillary as Secretary of state ..these things don't go unnoticed with observers from afar such as a tin pot place like NZ
    enz
    OP..I never watched the vid/dial up .. and a pain in the ass re you tube stuff
    so hope my post aint out of context
    wtf.

    Nope. Those numbers were completely made up. Don't you know anything? I mean, it was the MEDIA that reported the numbers, and we all know the media had decided obama was going to win before he even decided to run. The only logical answer is the shamans!:rolleyes:

    Hey now- it wasn't just the people voting FOR Obama... there was an awful lot that were voting AGAINST the Geezer/Dingbat ticket.

    I know. When the guy saw the picture of McCain and went off, well he should have conceded then. If I had seen it in November, I would have known 100% that McCain was finished

    In every election there is a % that isn't voting for one person, as much as they are voting against another candidate.:cool:

    If i had only known, then i wouldnt have joined the caravan from the Bay area last october to Carson city Nevada to get the red voters to turn blue. It worked, but the Peruvian Shamans would have worked with so much less effort on my part.

    I am particularly grateful to the guy in red for his full throated expression of disgust with McCain, how can I send him a thank you note?

    No.
    Just found the video a few days ago.

    Like finding the numbers to last weeks lotto winners.
    Too late to buy a ticket.

    On the other hand SpeedoGuy,
    if you are still taking bets on the 2008 election....:tongue:
