Another good 11th hour argument I got in email:

A president's pension currently is $191,300 per year, until
he is 80 years old.

Assuming the next president lives to age 80. Sen. McCain would receive ZERO pension as he would reach 80 at the end of two terms as president.

Sen. Obama would be retired for 26 years after two terms and would receive $4,973,800 in pension.

Therefore it would certainly make economic sense to elect McCain in November.
How's that for non partisan thinking?

But wouldn't Palin get the pension since she'd then become the President? I wonder what the math would be on her pension numbers.

miz minka - I got a giggle,too.

minikat - Killjoy.
But, no, she'd only get the pension if the pres died in office, wouldn't she? Is there a Veep pension? I spose there must be... I wonder what Dan Quayle is up to these days.
