Here we are, Moose...four years later.

I'm excited and nervous.
Hopeful and semi-confident.

I am also thrilled to be here, again, with you silly Moose.

When do you think we will know?

Kysen :: Open Thread: Watching...Waiting
I am curious to see how long the talking heads hold their calls. I wonder who will call the vital States first? Who will be the first to call it for Obama? I would like for it to be NBC via Rachel. /grin

So, here we are again, Moose...I can't imagine being anywhere else.

There is nowhere else (online) I'd rather be.  :P

11:00 or so (2.00 / 6)
Maybe a little later.

Bloody nerves are so bloody frayed. (2.00 / 5)
Sittin' here all antsy and twitchy. Gonna be a long night. Hope we at least KNOW by the end of it.

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.


It really is this simple: (2.00 / 5)

when will we know? OR when will it be called? (2.00 / 6)
CA will clinch it, it we win.  But we should know before that,  Say PA and FL are called.  Or if they call OH and FL.  We'll know.  One might even know just if FL is called for the Pres.

The future is unwritten

I think if FL or VA are called for Obama...it is a done deal. (2.00 / 7)
And if NC is called for Obama? It is going to be a THRASHING of Romney...an Obama sweep of all 'Swing' States.

That would be BEAUTIFUL.

MI for OBAMA!!! (2.00 / 8)
I guess the trees weren't quite the right height after all.

NY too.

All we need is MN and my home states are swept for the Pres.

The future is unwritten


Ohio (2.00 / 6)
0 55-44 with 27% in.

CNN exits (2.00 / 6)
Wisconsin 52-46 Obama, neither Romney nor Ryan will carry any of their home states

48-48 Colorado

50-43 New Mexico

50-47 Minnesota

All I need to feel better is for PA and ONE of the tighter battlegrounds to be called for us: FL or OH or VA.

The future is unwritten


Florida (2.00 / 6)
A dead heat with 76% of the vote in.

[ Parent ]
Broward and Miami-Dade... (2.00 / 3)
Still have lots of lift to come for Obama.

[ Parent ]
Obama win (2.00 / 5)
With VA competitive and OH closed, it's just the landslide issue

Yay

Really enjoying this celebration of democracy from the greatest democracy on earth

I'm celebrating with (2.00 / 7)
a pint of Newcastle.

[ Parent ]
Oh dear (2.00 / 6)
Guinness might be better. I've been at the CNN party here, but it closed at 2, and all I have is some Jack Daniels (don't ask what happened to the rest of my booze)

Raising it to you and fellow Mooq. Amazing. What a terrible four years we've all had to endure, and yet... here we are again.

[ Parent ]
Good to have ya here for the celebration. (2.00 / 4)
Tomorrow I head a timezone or two east of you. I'll raise a chaw of khat to you (appears I will be obliged) to continue the international feel of things.

Khat? Somalia? Afghanistan? Pakistan? (2.00 / 4)
Or would you have to kill me if you told me the truth?

Good Point (2.00 / 2)
Only 11-13% counted there so far.

[ Parent ]
Too close to call means... (2.00 / 2)
They can't work it out either

The p***artist formerly known as 'Brit'

[ Parent ]
Getting a little nervous about VA (2.00 / 7)
I've been comparing 2008 and 2012 results and it looks like the Prez is running behind his 2008 numbers. Only a few counties have reported all of their votes, so it's still not completely clear.  

This is not a recession. It's a robbery.

I've heard VA is actually going quite well (2.00 / 6)
They're not reporting right now because there are such long lines in NoVA.

[ Parent ]
John you're here (2.00 / 5)
Now I can relax

The p***artist formerly known as 'Brit'

Wouldn't have missed this (2.00 / 2)

i can't peel my eyes off (2.00 / 6)
loudoun and prince william counties in VA.  yo, kysen: i read somewheres that the latino pop. in the former is up 300% in the last decade.  that's a crowd i'd have expected OFA to have micro-targeted for registrations, sporadic voters, etc. to broaden the electorate.  gimmie a local perspective?  how's loudoun gonna turn-out?

NorVa...is HEAVILY Democratic... (2.00 / 8)
and has only grown in population in past few years.

Same with Hampton Roads (Norfolk/VaBch).

I am still hopin' on VA going to Obama again....and I am all but positive that Kaine will win the Senate.

I've not yet lost my confidence.

VA doesn't look very good to me right now. (2.00 / 3)
I'm holding out hope that there are still some heavily Dem precincts waiting to be counted. They extended voting hours in some of those districts. That could make a big difference.

This is not a recession. It's a robbery.

[ Parent ]
Don't give up on VA yet, bro.... (2.00 / 2)
I'm still cautiously optimistic about Obama winning the State.

I am near positive that Kaine will win over Allen for the Senate seat.

Still lots of NorVa to be counted...VERY heavily populated areas..and VERY Democratic.

If we do, I think it's fair to say (2.00 / 6)
that Latinos have saved the Republic.

10% of the electorate.  Hope Latino organizations manage to flex some muscle on immigration reform going forward.

I'm Guessing... (2.00 / 5)
We're going to just win Florida.

Uh, dude (2.00 / 6)
If you are going down that road then I'd say we owe more of a debt to African-Americans for saving the Republic.

This is not a recession. It's a robbery.

The increase in the Latino vote (2.00 / 6)

The weird thing about Bibi is that EVERYONE tells him that all the time. Even his partners and supporters.  I've never known anyone to be so widely disliked and politically unassailable.

Hoping that Labor can get back up to 20 seats under Yacimovich, even though she's disavowed most of what I liked about her.  But it's a rebuilding season.  Gotta get the nucleus of the team back together and grow it.
