Does anyone know if it is possible to create a SharePoint Designer Content Approval style parallel workflow with the deadline set in terms of hours versus a specific due date? We have workflows and Tasks that need to be responded to in terms of 1-2 hours not a whole day.

I am not sure what you mean by "parallel workflow".  Do you want to sent the approval task to several users in parallel then cancel if any of the users reject the changes?  
As for setting deadline within the workflow,  You can try this...
Add several minutes to Current Date and assign it to a workflow variable and then wait until the date specifies in the variable to continue with the next step.

Thanks for the answer. Re Parallel - yes, several users at once, altho' apparently the cancel on "rejected" is still up for discussion in the group.
