68. How about this: I voted for Nader in 2000. I helped put Bush in the WH. And I can live with that.
Do you really want to goad me and my ilk into doing so again? I voted for Obama in '08... but I'm not afraid to vote for my brother's car in '12, as it's old enough to be president. I can write in it's license plate number and state of registration... it woudn't be that hard.
