Nobody has called the race in Florida because it is too close to call, but in about 10 minutes, if you are an Obama fan, I would be near a television. At 10 ct, there is going to be a big announcement, I have a feeling.

I voted this morning at 7AM. There were four lines, one for each precinct/ward. Each line was short and the voting went smoothly. The poll workers were organized and efficient. I heard there was quite a line at around 8AM. This is a small town, though.

Yeah Virginia. I turned you blue.

Then again--are absentee votes even counted in this hullabaloo today? I sent it in about a month ago.

Is it just me, or is anyone else a little uncomfortable with all of the emphasis he's putting on Obama's race? *shrug* Looks like he's moved on from that now. I'm glad he's calling for unity.

(He being McCain)

That was a pretty good speech by McCain just now. When you take away all the campaigning and the differences in policy, I really respect the man. He's got a good heart.

Yeah, I was thinking that for a minute, but now he's back. And he's being a gentleman, but I knew he would be. [Smile]

My local news just says Obama's going to speak at around midnight.

I'm sleepy and have a test tomorrow! I should go to sleep!

Coffee is my best friend.

Absolutely.

How come you beat me to my puppy comment?

*sniff*

***************

Uh-oh -- sounds like he's asking us to roll-up our shirt sleeves and get to work . . . service, sacrifice and spirit.

Resolve.

Look after each other.

Rise and fall as one nation. (Did I miss something there?)

Resist temptation . . . and immaturity in politics. Did he just say that???? Immaturity? In politics??? [Cool]

Heh, the puppy thing was funny. I missed most of McCain's speech, I'll have to catch that later.

On the bright side, I won $20 in the electoral college pool at the bar I was at.

One of the guys at the bar I was at, when they showed all the different people celebrating at the different places yelled out "It's like the end of Star Wars! Show the Wookies celebrating for Obama." It was pretty funny. I can already see the Youtube video.

Obama is great.

McCain, however, gave an excellent concession speech. Humble, toned down, when he quieted the boos of the crowd he was doing it genuinely. It was a good speech.
