Auto-Maker Bail-Out

Just my two cents on the issue: if the US government offers a bailout to Detroit, it should come with conditions on fuel-efficiency and environment. Some people will suggest this will harm their competitiveness… Well, how competitive can they be when they’re completely bust? Even without these conditions they’re not exactly booming, so it’s a terrible excuse.

Most loans come with conditions, these are not terrible ones.

President-Elect Obama

Ok, so I didn't get it 100% right. Obama won more than I expected.

Two states still to call, but it seems like he's going to have 364 electoral votes . All the states I predicted, plus Indiana and North Carolina (I'm assuming they're going to call North Carolina for him, even though he has a minute lead there).

It was a great night, sitting in the college bar as we watched CNN predict everything extremely early. But, I guess, they were mostly right. Good ol' Blitzer.

Now, I guess, we've just got to see how good he is at governing. Here's to hoping...

My Optimistic Election Prediction

I predict an electoral college win for Obama: 338-200

(Possibly 353-185 if North Carolina switches.)

Basically, everything Kerry won in 204, with the addition of Colorado, Virginia, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Florida and maybe Iowa.

I also think it's going to be a very close popular vote result.

Tune in tomorrow, to see if I was right.
