(CNN) – John McCain may have gotten a bad sign about his White House chances only hours before voters weighed in at the polls
The Washington Redskins, whose pre-Election Day match-ups have a long history of correctly predicting the presidential race, seemed to forecast a victory for Barack Obama Monday night.
For 16 of the past 17 elections, the incumbent party holds on to the White House when the Redskins win their last game before Election Day. When they lose the game, the opposition party has gone on to win the presidential race.
The Pittsburgh Steelers crushed the Redskins Monday night, 23-6, suggesting Barack Obama is poised for a win.
But McCain should not despair - the tradition did not hold true in 2004. Green Bay beat Washington that year, but President Bush narrowly won re-election.
Yes, go Dems!!!!! I am a soccer and baseball mom in Arizona who was more glad than ever to vote this morning at 6am with coffee in hand!!! Good things are coming to this country, finally. God bless America!
Rhonda: I do pray God....and she agreed. Obama.
Florida decided the 2000 election, now dispite the supreme cort stopping the recount, those ballots were not tossed out or burned. They were stored in a warehouse, and a Non Partisan research group did a count of all the ballots, in four (count that FOUR) different ways, like not counting dimples, hanging chads ect...
Gore won 4 out of 4 ways to recount. If the recount had continued, Gore would have won florida and he would have been president.
Thats a fact, go look it up if you dont belive me. Simple ego defenses dont work here, fact rules.
Why do you waste our time and bandwidth with such drivel? Please focus upon Obama parting the waters, curing polio, etc.
Catholic-mom-4-OBAMA- how do you call yourself a Christian?
Whether you are speaking of Democrats or Republicans there are lies and deception that come from BOTH parties, neither is innocent. God does not judge by which political party you are. He accepts all and whoever wins, it was meant to be. Everything happens for a reason.
Catolic mom 4 Obamma? Your trust is in GOD? And your going to vote a liberal that stand against everything a conservative, cristtian stands for. You peoe should wake up and smell the bulls#*t!!!!
If "O" wins, you better believe you've been scammed.
So the Redskins loss in 2004 actually WAS Right, since the 2004 election was Rigged in Ohio and Kerry really won if it was done right!
Voted last week for OBAMA.
