Uh, yeah, we can measure -1. The charge of an electron. The distance along the x-axis that I travel when I walk one meter west. The effect on a wave when it encounters an identical one 180 degrees out of phase.

And if negative numbers worry you, this will blow your mind: by all indications, the way things really work, at the quantum level, is unavoidably governed by complex numbers. Don't let that "imaginary" label fool you...those bastards are really real, too. Sorry.

In all the ways that really matter (fiscal policy, economic policy, regulation, law enforcement, etc...), the candidates are identical.

I think you've taken a valid point and stretched it a little far here. If we'd had eight years of Gore starting in 2000, do you think Iraq would have played out exactly the same? If we were on our way to eight years of McCain starting in 2008, do you think the trends in health insurance would be what they are?

Whether you approve or disapprove, you have to agree they'd have been different.
