The lone American off the planet has cast his vote from space, keeping with NASA's motto of "Vote while you float."

NASA said Monday that astronaut Shane Kimbrough filed his ballot in Tuesday's presidential election from the International Space Station
sometime over the past few days. He arrived at the orbiting lab in mid-October.

Ohioans, Tired of Status Quo, Flipped to Trump for Change






By SABRINA TAVERNISE

The Hoover vacuum company plant in Canton, Ohio. Stark County, a former manufacturing center, has voted for
Democrats in the past three elections but flipped this year for Donald J. Trump.



MASSILLON, Ohio — Gerry Noble, a 64-year-old electrician from northeast Ohio, voted for President Obama
in 2012 because “he was trying to help the common man.”

But he scoffs when asked about Hillary Clinton.

“I don’t trust Hillary,” he said.

So, in this election, Mr. Noble, a lifelong Democrat, broke with the tradition of his union, the International
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 540, and voted Republican.

Majority of the states voted for Trump. But the most populated areas voted for Clinton. That's why she won he popular vote.

Obama Blames Clinton and Her Out-of-Touch Campaign for Losing Election







It wasn’t Russia, WikiLeaks, James Comey, Facebook, third parties, Sanders, sexism or the media’s fault

A common complaint against Hillary Clinton throughout her campaign was that she came off to voters as cold and highly scripted. WikiLeaks
emails released from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta revealed her campaign staff debated back and forth about what to have her say,
often without any input from Clinton herself. The campaign’s response to the disconnect Clinton had with voters was to rely on data driven
from a computer algorithm named Ada rather than hold more press conferences to personally address voters’ concerns, or hold more town
halls and appearances in working class communities.

It’s Official: Hillary Clinton Ran The Most Incompetent Presidential Campaign In Modern History








Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign was doomed not by Russia, or the FBI, or fake news, but by a
never-ending cascade of terrible decisions by its top campaign staff in Brooklyn.



By Sean Davis

It wasn’t sexism, or racism, or the FBI, or fake news, or the Russians, which cost Hillary Clinton the presidential election. According to a
blockbuster campaign dispatch published by Politico on Wednesday, sheer incompetence was the real cause of Clinton’s electoral implosion
in November.

Clinton’s loss was caused not by one bad decision here or there, the Politico report shows, but by a cascade of mind-bogglingly stupid
decisions made throughout the campaign.

The Democratic Party has a game manager president. The GOP has a gunslinging turnover machine candidate. Both presidential candidates have a Namath with the Rams, Unitas with the Chargers, or Emmit Smith with the Cardinals feel to it. There's no franchise presidential candidate in this year's draft. The potential for one or two more good years left is Rodgers with the Jets.
If Biden goes to the Jets.
You got it all over him.

Anybody ever watch the "Accidental President" documentary available through streaming? It was a fast moving recap of some of the things said here plus a little more background.

Is the GOP presidential candidate going to be a right-wing whacko or a convicted felon?

Trump will stay in the game. He is incapable of accepting responsibility. His donor minions and hangers on will continue to fund his rising legal expenses. No doubt that he will stiff as many creditors as he can continue to. And the rest of the Republican Party is too afraid to go against him and the MAGA nuts.

Basically the 2024 election will be between a convicted felon and a guy who is slowly going senile with his dementia getting worse.

Fun times lay ahead for us Americans. :roll:
