Good News, Bad News

There's an old joke about a doctor who offers good news and bad news to a patient in the hospital. "Which would you like to hear first," he asks the man he's treating.

"Give me the bad news," says the patient.

"I'm afraid I have to amputate both your legs at the knees,"states the doctor.

The patient, visibly shaken, stammers, "What could the good news be?"

The doctor quickly responds, "the guy in the next room wants to buy your shoes."

That is how the Zogby America Poll left me feeling. Read on.

If the shadows of future presidential elections remain unchanged, Republicans again will take the White House in 2008, according to polling conducted this month. The results also conclude that U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., would be the winner.

A Zogby America poll was conducted Dec.6-8 of 1,013 registered voters across the nation, and those responding were asked who they would vote for if the election were held today.

In order to keep the Democrats out do I have to let McCain in?
