Obama's Grandmother Dies

Sad to hear that his grandmother lost her battle with cancer and she could not hang on to see if her grandson makes history tomorrow. Thoughts go out to the Obama family.

Re: Obama's Grandmother Dies

That's so sad, just losing his grandmother in the first place. But on top of that the unfortunate timing, on the eve of the election.

Thoughts go out to him for sure.

Re: Obama's Grandmother Dies

I wonder if he will still do the 1/2 time interview.

Re: Obama's Grandmother Dies

And shame on the pundits who had the gall to question Obama's decision to take time off of the campaign trail to visit her in her last days.

damn, I hope not.
the election will go the way of who wins the Skins / Steelers game. Basically, if the Skins win, McCain wins, if the Skins lose, Obama makes it.

LETS GO SKINS!

Re: Obama's Grandmother Dies

The streak was broken in 2004.

At this point though it's McCain's best hope and that's not saying much.

I thought I saw before the game it was 17 of 17...could have sworn that's what they were saying.

If that's what they said they were wrong.

Interesting read. Good link.
It probably has something to do with this:
References to other dimensions aside, Hirdt said he enjoys touting the Redskins Rule because the team is not required to support the same political party each election. It is a politically unbiased phenomenon that has stood the test of time, though it is worth pointing out the rule was tweaked after the controversial election of 2000, when George W. Bush topped Al Gore despite losing the popular vote.

In 2004, the Redskins lost to the Packers 28-14, suggesting Bush should have lost to John Kerry. Hirdt changed the way the rule is applied to have it refer to the previous winner of the popular vote, not the electoral vote.

“Scientists are always studying data and coming up with different conclusions,” Hirdt rationalized. “After 2004, because Al Gore won the popular vote in 2000, we tweaked the precision of how the Redskins Rule is applied.”

Is that cheating? Perhaps, but keep in mind that this is a rule that was discovered only during efforts to help fill the airwaves during a football game.

Re: Obama's Grandmother Dies

We already have a thread on the "Redskins Rule" (two in fact, one since locked). We don't need to divert the purpose of this thread as well

It's good to know his grandmother's vote will be counted.
