Here's something I've kind of wondered about.
So, before the election, there were a lot of people who had Kerry or Bush stickers on their cars. Now, here we are a week plus out of the election and I just wonder--are the people who put those stickers on their cars still happy they did so? And what is the time limit for keeping such a bumper sticker on your car? If you supported Kerry do you leave it on there as a show of solidarity? If you supported Bush does it look like you're rubbing it in that your candidate won?
And here's the most important part--does having the sticker on there for either candidate affect the re-sale value of the vehicle?
I know when I was little and thought bumper stickers were the coolest thing I'd ever seen, my father refused to put any on our cars becuase they were hard to come off and would make a big mess when the time came to sell the car. (This was in the days before the popular window clings). So maybe that's part of where I'm coming from here--that sort of long-term thinking process.
Anyone else want to weigh in here?
