how come the losing candidate never seems to run again in future elections? Is it simply because it takes a lot of resources or are there rules in each party that prevents them from running again?

Some unspecifieds with Romney's plan. He feels like a puppet to me...not someone that has his own opinion about anything. Seems like everything he does is planned and calculated. The only time you get the feeling you're looking at the real Mitt Romney is when he gave that speech about the 47%. Like he believes he's that far above normal folks.

It's embarrassing to the party they are affiliated with if they do. Actually, it's embarrassing in general.

Nixon lost in 1960 against JFK, he ran again and won in '68.

Not a Romney fan but I'd really like to see a balancing in the US budget, particulary doing smth about the looming fiscal cliff.

Romney is expected to take those redneck states. Obama will do considerably better when the results come in for midwest, central, and western US.

if you look at the live update Obama is leading Ohio but lets keep in mind most states are only reporting 1 or 2% of the votes so far

wait a few more hours to get an accurate result


and as for Ohio the provisional ballots wont be counted until Nov 17 so if its close there they wont know who wins for a couple of weeks
