    The only thing that would suprise me would be if Ron Paul would cheat on his wife.

    What about you?

    Electing an atheist.

    And understanding the terms "Socialism" & "Communism" without hurling them at anything that you don't agree with or understand properly.

    The last thing I'd be expecting would be for Obama and Romney to turn into ice skating Mongooses and dance the Bolero.

    Well, that's true. Maybe then if he stopped posturing, I'd be surprised! :p

    This, and...

    Also, politicians and pundits actually behaving like adults. The toddler behavior in every election campaign never ceases to amaze me.

    "Barack Obama pee'd in his pants last week!"

    "It's JUST. NOT. TRUE!"

    "Candidate A wants to take what's mine! MINE MINE MINE!"

    That was my knee-jerk answer, too.
    To that let's add "Integrity" and "Charisma", two qualities that seem to have nothing whatsoever to do with any politician at any level of any government.
