Gone to the dogs...


Having already suffered a blow to my predictions with
the news that my outside bet for the Lib Dem leadership isn't even going to "throw his hat in the ring", I thought I'd have a quick look at what's going on over the pond.

The big news in the US Presidential election is that John McCain now has a sizeable - 5% - lead over Barack Obama...


...among people who own pets.

Apparently because John McCain has a pet he appears more 'compassionate, caring, giving [and] trustworthy' than Barack Obama.

So there you go.

And for those of you campaigning in Glasgow East just remember this - when you see a garden with a huge rottweiler in it, the owner of said pet is more likely to vote for your candidate if they have a pet themselves. That's if you can get to them without getting an arm torn off first...

Thanks for the advise. I'll have to investigate the pet ownership status of Ian Robertson before I hit the streets next to form a fully compotent risk assesment of the dog encounter scenario.

Actually further to the above maybe I should also ask to go somewhere where there are gardens rather than the tennements I was in last time. Then again somebody's got to be able to climb all those stairs.
