Thirteen days.

I am ready for this election season to end soon. There has to be some middle ground between the twenty-two months of an American national political campaign, and the six weeks of a Canadian one.

I am ready for inauguration -- to eliminate the uncertainty as to whether Bush will actually relinquish the presidency.

Oh, I don't know - after this past election cycle, 6 weeks is looking pretty good. Slightly longer might be nice, but certainly no longer than a year.

Oh Andrew, you ARE an optimist, I'm starting to see articles about the 2012 campaign starring Sarah Palin -- someone please make it stop!

OTOH, I dropped off the household's two mail-in ballots at the Wellington Webb building yesterday. A good feeling.

The 2012 campaign forecast is a joke.
Barack will win 2008.
That means (unless he fucks up badly) that we won't have a real contest until 2016.
The 2016 campaign will begin on November 6th (one day off for everyone).
Eight-year campaign. You heard it here first.

At this point, it's hard to imagine a time before the campaign. When it's over, it's going to feel like a pet has died. A really annoying, not house-trained pet.
