Barack Obama's grandmother died on November 3, a day before Election day. Recently he visited her...That lost explains the difficult transits of today in his chart, 3 inconjunctions (meaning: having to let go...and being unbalanced), 2 of them coming from planets in his 7th house (the grandparents house). Some transits don't refer to winning or losing, only to personal feelings.
The remains found in the wreck of the plane of Steve Fossett are indeed his. You find my post about him here. , http://astropost.blogspot.com/2008/10/astrology-chart-steve-fossett-example.html
