Poll: Pet owners favor McCain
From George Washington's foxhound "Drunkard" to George W. Bush's terriers "Barney" and "Miss Beazley," pets are a longtime presidential tradition for which the presumed Republican nominee seems well prepared, with more than a dozen.

Thanks to Andrea for this article about pet owners, especially dog owners, leaning toward the pet-owning John McCain. Obama has apparently promised his kids a dog once the campaign's over. :-)

I have two dogs and I prefer Obama to McCain.

'Course, it's not like I get a vote this November. LOL

Well, this pet owner would rather eat cat food than vote for McCain.

I'm seriously considering making a t-shirt for Tink on CafePress (or wherever) that says "My Human Supports Obama" or possibly "Another Dog For Obama".

I would be very interested to see how age intersects the survey. I suspect that, on average, pet ownership is skewed to an older set, which will probably have a bias towards McCain.

I'm inclined to agree with chesther. And I love the idea of a shirt for my Bandit. But neither I, nor my parents (owners of a pain in the ass Norwegian Forest cat) are planning on voting for McCain.
