It is now time for all of us to lay down our bets on the final (post-litigation!?!?) electoral vote count. I will now go on the record with a bet that the election goes to Kerry, with 305 EVs. I am NOT interested in anyone attacking this prediction on the basis of perceived ideological/partisan bias. If you don't buy it, you don't buy it, but your skepticism must be accompanied by an alternative prediction. (note: my prediction is based on Colorado voting to split its electoral votes. If they don't, which I don't have the confidence to predict, then my prediction is 301 EVs). Whoever wins, contributors or our readers, receives....well, nothing really, except our esteem, whatever that's worth.
