How to Remove that Kerry/Edwards or Bush '04 Sticker

In a couple of days, those bumper stickers will be obsolete. The leading Democratic and Republican candidates will announce their running mates and accept their nominations. And if you try to stick your new Obama sticker on top of that Kerry/Edwards sticker- it just won't stick until the 2012 elections, so please- do us all a favor and remove the old sticker properly so that we can reminisce about the 2008 elections for the next four years. I know- it's hard to let go of the '04 election and all the chaos in Ohio and Florida, but it's been four long years and, like I told Hillary, it's time to move on.

Here are directions for removing your outdated election bumper sticker (you may need a razor blade if you have been watching Olympic swimming and track & field events- they are nail-biters):

1. Go outside to your car.
2. Start by scraping diagonally from one corner of the sticker inward toward the center of the sticker until there is sufficient material to grab with your thumb and forefinger.
3. Simply pull the loosened corner (with your thumb and forefinger) diagonally until the sticker is completely removed. It's like magic.
4. Thoroughly clean the bumper where you envision your new election sticker. Allow to dry completely.
5. Attach your new bumper sticker according to directions.

I've heard the McCain stickers are extra sticky, so you might try sticking your McCain-Romney sticker directly on top of your "W '04" sticker.

By the way- I recently made a trip back to Bozeman, Montana- (widely regarded as Republican country) where I went to college. I was shocked to see NOT ONE McCain bumper sticker, but quite a few Obama stickers and yard signs...
