I bet the abstainers will win. And not because of the "good times" everyone's talking about. With such little difference between Tweedledum and Tweedledumber, why bother? If W wins, Clinton, the DLC and Martin Peretz will be sad, which would make me happy - and hopefully this means that Nader made a good showing. If Gore wins, at least we won't be forced to look at W's smirk and Cheney's sneer for 4 years.
