When you're 21, of course.
I bet she's out there working the polls.


I forgot to call my Mom to make sure she got out to vote (even though she'll vote Republican I always make sure she does it).

looks like CNN is predicting a win for Kaine in VA!!!

congrats and a job well done to U2dem!!!



looks like Bush's last minute visit to help out Kilgore demonstrates that the man-child has become political poison.

onward to 2006!!!

# Voters in Maine were deciding whether to repeal a law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Recent polls showed the repeal trailing by a wide margin.
I'd like to see the result of this race. Here's hoping the people of Maine have some sense to not let this ludicrous waste of taxpayer cash pass.

Honestly, is it really necessary to have a plebiscite on repealing a law like this in 2005?

Looks like I spoke too soon.

bloomberg won... i'm so shocked

[/sarcasm]


he was running against a guy with a 1970's porn stache who barely beat a guy named weiner in the democratic primary...



he's done a great job with NYC since 9/11... good to see that the overwellming majority of the voters in the city agree. more democrats voted for bloomberg in this election than voted for rudy G in any of his elections.

Yeah, well, Texas, once again, shows it's a bastion of tolerance.

I don't know why one person would want to live in that hellhole.

As many Democrats have put it...

"He's not a real Republican."

It's not difficult to see why he was reelected.

That is the price if you want to compete against the big election budgets of politic party`s,....and their friendship politics.

Voters Report Problems With Machines in Virginia

Virginia televsion station WDBJ-TV reports voters in at least four different precincts "say their votes for Tim Kaine were not recorded or took several attempts to go through. They contend the electronic touch screens repeatedly indicated they were voting for Republican candidate Jerry Kilgore instead of registering their intended vote for his Democratic opponent Tim Kaine."

It's the price if you want to continue to own the Democratic controlled legislature.

he's not a real republican, nor is he a real democrat... despite being a member of the republican party, he really is a true independent... does what he this is right regardless of what the party might think.

Voters Endorse Maine Gay Rights Law
by Paul Carrier

Maine voters reversed themselves on a contentious issue Tuesday by embracing the state's new anti-discrimination law, giving supporters of gay rights a convincing referendum win after two previous losses.

With 75 percent of Maine's 634 precincts reporting, unofficial returns showed Question 1, which would have repealed the law, going down to defeat, 56 percent to 44 percent. That means the law, which bans discrimination based on sexual orientation, takes effect immediately, making Maine the sixth and final state in New England to put such a law on the books.
