If anyone can show me, and prove to me, that I am wrong in thought or deed, I will gladly change. I seek the truth, which never yet hurt anybody. It is only persistence in self-delusion and ignorance which does harm.~Marcus Aurelius

After nominations, the Democratic Candidate is slightly favored 51.0/49.0
Interestingly, Colin Powell is listed as both a potential Republican and a potential Democratic nominee. His Democratic ticket has yet to produce any gambling action but did get me thinking that theoretically he could be nominated by BOTH parties. Not going to happen with Powell, but what if there was a candidate so popular that he was the favorite for both parties? My guess is that it would lead to one of the parties splitting and would be a disaster.
