    > "Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you
    settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high
    official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

    > "No problem, just let me in," says the senator.

    > "Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up.
    What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven.
    Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

    > "Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in
    heaven," says the senator.

    > "I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

    > And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he

    It's a shame that we have 50 contestants for Miss USA and only two contestants for President.
    Who says that we have only two?

    We may have only two runner-ups before the due date, but we sure have more contestants before the last two are selected.

    But anyway, I think it's better to look at 50 beautiful contestants running for Miss USA, than having to watch more than two old man , fighting for the same seat on the oval office.
