This one still has me biting my nails...being where I'm from and all. I'm just so frustrated with the third-party candidate at this point. It won't be settled for days, at the very least though.

Bush just spoke in the Rose Garden. To which I said, "Oh yeah, I forgot you were still president."

i gotta tell a story my mom just told me on the phone this morning..

She (she is 68 yrs young) was at work most of the night while results were coming in but had heard by someone that there was some commotion going on downtown (she lives in the small town of Bellingham, Wa) so she decided to take a drive down there to be a part of it all. She told me there were about a couple hundred people in the streets celebrating mainly college age hooting and hollering, etc. Well at one point a guy came up to her window of her car leaned in and gave my mom a huge kiss on the cheek! HOW AWESOME WAS THAT. The excitement she said was palable with true joy from everyone there. She was really proud, happy that she went down there and became a part of it for a bit.

I don't think so because it only appeared to be on the sides - maybe for sound or something

It wouldn't surprise me if it was though

My good friend just called me and said that she had not felt this way since she was a high school student and JFK was elected. I can only say, it makes me wish even more that I was older to feel what it was like to be around with JFK, RFK, MLK.....

I am happy for America and the world today.

I, for one, will enjoy it very much.
Eh, Fox already tried to do their "comedy" show. Problem is, they're not funny.

Re: bullet-proof glass

Considering the Secret Service provides protection for the candidates while they're running, it makes total sense that they bust out the bullet-proof glass and whatever other protection is needed for the newly crowned president-elect.

They're funniest when they're actually trying to 'report the news'.
