    It's not long now until this horrible presidential campaign is thankfully over.

    So who will it be? There can be only one...

    I'm going for Clinton. I just think there will enough Trump/fence sitters who will come to their senses.

    Btw This is not a political view by me ~ I think they are both terrible representatives.

    Edit: but Trump is a mentalist. He reminds me of the president character in the the film "The Dead Zone" played by Martin Sheen.

    Popular vote: Clinton 47 Trump 44. Others 9.
    Electoral college more like 58-42 to Clinton (or whatever that tranlates into).

    That will be relief to most of the world outside of the US if that is the result.

    If the republicans had taken Trump's ideas and presented them via another centre-right candidate they probably would walk away with it. Thank god for Trump, I guess!

    As a Canadian I would not like to see the Trumpster become president. I believe it would be bad for not only Canada, but also for other countries, as well as the U.S.! I don't believe in all my years i've ever seen two more disliked canidates running for the Presidency. Neither of them are saints in my opinion. I do believe though the world would be better off with Clinton in office, than the Trumpster.

    Pogo for President

    Walt Kelly started publishing the Pogo comic strip in 1949, detailing the life of a possum who was a resident of the Okefenokee Swamp. In 1952, during the "I Like Ike" campaign, Kelly announced that Pogo was running for President.

    Pogo was a reluctant candidate. "I'm not a president," he said, "I'm just a possum who likes to fish." His platform was also very simple. He stated a preference for "a regular old-fashioned flat-bottomed type platform for use at land or sea." Nevertheless, his candidacy turned out to be wildly popular.

    Millions of "I Go Pogo" campaign buttons were sold. NBC promised complete coverage of the Pogo Party bid. Kelly noted, "We hope to lull the regular parties into a false sense of security by our reported attempts to clarify the issues. Once they have laughed us off, then we will strike."

    The most memorable moment of the campaign came when 1600 students gathered at Harvard Square for a Pogo for President rally. The meeting grew so out of control that it escalated into a riot, and 28 Harvard students were arrested. Near-riots happened at other campuses. For instance, at Williams College students marched around town for an hour, halting traffic, chanting "We Go Pogo."

    On election day, Pogo reportedly received more votes than either the Nudist or Vegetarian Parties.

    Pogo's reluctant campaign continued in following years, though it never again attracted the same amount of publicity.

    Hey CS,

    You have a little brown spot on the tip of you nose you might want to wipe off before you go out in public.
