I too afraid to enjoy this. I will remain afraid until the election is called for Hillary.

It would be wonderful if the GOP hit rock bottom. The country would benefit. But, I remember the election of 2000. The Iraq War would not have happened had they finished the recount. Crazy shit happens.

I'm too young to have any memory of the 2000 election - besides being British, my age at that point was still counted in months - however this comment drove home (for perhaps the first time) how much recent world history hinges on the smallest things. It's a 'for the want of a nail' scenario of the purest form but one that played out on the very highest of stages. Crazy shit happens, indeed.

Clinton supporters just need to remember to go out and vote if they want her to win. No matter how good their odds look, if they get over confident and don't vote, they could find themselves with another "Dewey Defeats Truman."

I've seen an awful lot of polls where Johnson is as close to Trump as Trump is to Hillary. The candidate who can't seem to get any coverage without at least one dick joke from the party where Vermin Supreme doesn't look that strange has as much a chance of coming in second as Trump does of winning.
