Monday, November 01, 2004 - Redskins lose, so Kerry should win - Redskins lose, so Kerry should win: "MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) John Kerry supporters got a welcome omen for their candidate on Sunday: The Green Bay Packers defeated the Washington Redskins.
If history holds, the 28-14 score portends a victory for Kerry on Tuesday because the result of the Redskins' final home game before the presidential election has always accurately predicted the White House winner.
If the Redskins win, the incumbent party wins. If they lose, the incumbent party is ousted.
'Oh, yeah, he's going to win. It's guaranteed,' said Packers safety Darren Sharper, a Kerry supporter. 'I don't have to vote now. Don't even have to go to the polls. Saved me a trip on Tuesday.'
The Democratic candidate, who describes himself as superstitious and carries a lucky buckeye, cheered the omen.
'I couldn't be more thrilled with the Packers win today,' Kerry said. 'The Packers have done their part. This Tuesday, we'll do ours.' "
