Preparing for the Real Presidential Election

California Electoral College Certificate of VoteWe'll be at the TV Thursday at 10 am Pacific Standard Time when Vice President Dick Chaney presides over a Joint Session of Congress to count the only ballots that really matter in the Presidential election. 

CSPAN will carry the drama live. There will be a nationwide audience of, oh, probably a dozen people.

If you cannot wait for the official count, you can get a sneak preview at the Federal government website that has pictures of the Electoral College certificates from all 51 jurisdictions.  Did you know that Frank More was a write-in candidate in California and won 39 popular votes?

[I would run a poll asking whether or not we are political geeks, but there is only one answer.]
