I love politics. This year is as crazy as it gets. I'm particularly amazed at how politics has taken to the web. A great example is the battling electoral college prediction websites. The two best known are:

www.electoral-vote.com

and

www.electionprojection.com

Each has a partisan bent, but both claim to be giving the honest truth. Electoral-vote.com is pro-Kerry. While the site is definitely much less partisan than electionprojection.com, the author admits in disclaimers that he's pro-Kerry. Being a Kerry guy myself, I tend to agree with the guy at electoral-vote.com. His rationale is sound and I like how has the history of the predictions he's made, the raw data sets, and even a movie of the electoral map for each day of the past several months showing both Bush and Kerry leading at different times.

Go check them out. And please go vote!

P.S. Today's my daughter's birthday! She's 11! If you know her, wish her happy birthday!
