Default If McCain Had Won...

how would you feel!? I would feel sad. Now, of course, if you are some kind of a lunatic don't answer (to jab at another post)...

lol, you don't want a hug? :P

I'd be disappointed. And praying that he stayed in good health to keep Palin as far away from the office as possible. I was on the fence with who to vote for until he picked her.

I'd be disappointed, but there was a part of me doubting Obama would win, so I wouldn't have been terribly surprised. I went through this election feeling like Charlie Brown going for the football (which Lucy releases before he can kick it). This is just from watching how the 2000 and 2004 elections went down.

Except we kicked it!

I would definitely be in a funk, but I would be prayerful, just as I am now. When God puts someone in a position of power to be a leader, any good follower would pray that they stay humble, that he surrounds himself with wise council, and that he would stay on the path for the vision of repairing our country and not pursuing selfish ambitions. I would have said the same prayer for McCain. Luckily, I don't have to.

I would have been in shock and then cried.

Obama losing also would have completely shattered my belief in people and their ability to put differences aside, in order to come together. This election and it's nasty headlines had me thinking how truly divided we were. It made me sad. But, my god, seeing all those faces in Grant Park changed all of that.

This is more or less true for me as well. The difference is that I'm pretty sure I still would have been in a funk for a while. Earlier today my husband commented on how down I had been when Bush won in '04. I have a feeling that it would have been worse this time.

That's how I was feeling. I didn't like Kerry, but actually cried when he lost. Just knowing that thing were going to get worse (I didn't realize just how bad though)

I agree, minus the disappointment part. The real McCain is more like what he showed last night, not the past few weeks of the election. It would have been ok in the end (unless his healthcare plan passed. I didn't like either of them).

Well of course, that's all minorities know how to do.


I am so, so happy that there were no arrest in Grant Park last night. I made sure I let that fact be known to my idiot boss who was predicting huge problems and tons of arrests whether Obama won or lost.

I agree. Palin pushed me over the edge... but his healthcare plan was close to doing it too. All in all, I was a lot more impressed with the man I saw give his speech last night than I have been of the McCain I've seen for the last 6 months or so.

I would have been disappointed, and then my atheist ass would have started praying really hard for a) McCain's continued good health and, even more importantly, b)that the past year was just a front to fool the fanatics, bigots, and sociopaths of his party and he'd instantly turn back into the McCain of 2000.

I would have cried big old crocodile tears of disbelief and misery.

Instead I cried big old crocodile tears of disbelief and joy.

I already was making plans to pack only the essentials and flee to Canada if McCain won.

I probably would have gone through the 5 stages of grief.

1. Denial
2. Anger
3. Bargaining(with GOD to keep McCain alive his entire term)
4. Depression
5. Acceptance

..and I would have gone through all these stages within a day(expect the bargaining stage! ).

Word.

Heh. Seriously? I'd have been disappointed because Obama's positions are simply much more closely aligned with mine on certain issues. I'd also have been worried about our future position and reputation in the world, because - like it or not - we are not the isolationist country that we were a hundred years ago, and that matters.

If he'd chosen a different running-mate I'd have probably left it at that and hoped he proved my fears wrong. But with Palin as his VP choice, my emotions would have also included horror that that kind of a Machiavellian religious nut was close to that position, and taken it as disgusted confirmation that my government in no way would ever represent me or my interests.
