I’m predicting a McCain landslide in which he wins 55 of all 57 states.

He will either be sworn in in January, in which case he wins, or he will retire, in which case he wins. Win-win.

Technically, the official electoral vote count is to be announced by Vice President Cheney before the Senate on or about January 6, 2009. Oprah’s Obama seems the clear favorite at this point.

Apparently, even McPain’s neighboring states, CA, NV, and NM are for Oprah’s Obama too.

For Republicans the vote is in November, Democrats vote in January.

Maybe he means, “My lawyers will win in January”. He’s out to topple the Bush record of not winning ‘til December!

Actually the election is in December:

“Electors meet in their respective state capitals (or in the case of Washington, D.C., within the District) on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December, at which time they cast their electoral votes on separate ballots for President and Vice President.”

Maybe McCain knows it will end up in court. I doubt it though, he is kind of looney.

That's what GW thought. But with the court cases and recounts, it went well into December.

The RINO relic is becoming the Yogi Berra of politics. And for McCain, the proper Yogism may be “it is getting late early.”

Er... in which of the 57 states did John McCain figure out the election is going to be in... January. If so he and Obama agree it won't be for another six months!

I'm sure he screwed up, but technically January 6, 2009 is when the next president 'technically' wins.  On the 1st Monday after the second Wednesday of December the 'electors' of each state get together in their respective states and cast their votes.  These 'electors' can vote for the other guy (known as a faithless elector), it has probably happened before, but I'm not aware of it.  Then the results of the 'electors' are presented to a joint session of congress on January 6th (12th amendment), counted and the results declared by both houses of congress.

Expect this to lead the MSM coverage for the next three days. "McCain is senile and showing his age!"

Meanwhile, all of the veterans who paid the ultimate sacrfice but still showed up at Obama's rally will be laughing.......

Technically he's right. Come January in a joint session of Congress Vice President Cheney will open the envelopes from the 51 Electoral College meetings in the 50 states and the District of Columbia and announce who got the largest number of votes for president.

Of course the results will have been predicted ever since the public voted to choose the Electoral College slates back in November, so it will be rather anticlimactic.

No, there is not one election in November, there are 51 separate elections, one in each state and one in the District of Columbia. Those elections are for electors, not for the president. The electors cast their votes in December and the totals for each candidate for president and vice president are certified by the electors and sent to Washington where they are held until after the new Congress is sworn in in January. Technically, we do not know who will be the president until those certificates are opened and tallied in a joint session of Congress.

If no candidate receivea a majority of the votes (270 electoral votes), the House choses the president on a one-state, one-vote ballot with 26 state votes required. That may happen in January or it may happen in February or in March depending upon the makeup of the individual House delegations.

Technically, McCain is correct, he will be declared the winner in January.

I agree. Obama is such a flawed candidate on so many levels. I think it could actually turn ugly for Obama come election night.

Democrats will do really well in Congressional races however, lots of extra racist Democrats will be rushing to the polls to keep Obama out.

We vote for Electors in November.

The Electors vote for President and Vice-President in December.

The results are officially announced in January.
