Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

When I read the thread title abbreviation, I thought I was going to get to do something fun like make a map of the race between them, which would be fantastically interesting.  Instead, the OP asks us to choose which one of these most excellent gents we would vote for.  Good grief, I've never been asked a more difficult question on Atlas.  So, I'm going to wimp out and post my map.

I originally thought Torie and Clarence would split the GOP vote, allowing Gramps to win.  But, when I pondered it further, it seems to me Torie would split both votes, as many socially liberal Dems would be inclined to go with Gramps, but they would be satisfied with Torie's social stances and settle for his slightly less right economic stance (Torie scores more to the center than Gramps in his matrix score).  Between his stances on energy and immigration and his health care, education and social policies, Torie could pull votes from both sides of the aisle in different regions of the country.  But the swing-state results would, in the end, be all over the place!  So, taking all this into account, the map of this terribly exciting, and hilarity-filled race, might end up looking something like this:



Torie          226
Gramps      178
Clarence     134

So, when all is said and done, I don't have to choose and neither do you--let the House do it!  Tongue 

The only thing the country could be sure of and unite behind would be, no matter who wins, one hell of an Inauguration Day party.

It is rather disturbing to me that Gramps is taking third place so far.

God, you really know how to hurt a guy.  But then, I am a big fan of euthanasia. Smiley

I was originally going to include morticians, but thought that was a bit too dark, even for me.

How often have you had it done so far? Can you recommend it?

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

I have miles to go before I sleep, and have not yet done everything that is elegant and desirable to complete the life that I want to complete, in the way I want to complete it. So the best is yet to come.
