I abstained. I honestly couldn't make a decision between the two. Though near the very end I might have been leaning just a bit towards Obama, if only because Sarah Palin was such a terrible VP pick. But only slightly, if at all.

How is NV not showing as blue? It's 60% to Obama for Christ's sake! Even MT should be blue! 53%

Unfuckingbelievable! The night when red states turned blue!

You'll find it's because of the fact that America didn't give the win to the disgraceful, hate filled McCain campaign that a lot of people feel better about America.

Personally, at this moment, for me, it's what this night represents. Our country is living up to its to the promise of equality it was founded upon. This is a country where only 45 years ago Barack Obama would've had to drink from a different fountain in some states. Now, he's our president. I am so proud. As Jon Stewart said a little while ago, "The U.S. is finally living up to it's ideals." It's simply remarkable. We can talk about policy and goals tomorrow, tonight is a night of a dream being realized.

She just messed up the national anthem, didn't she? Wow, it must've gotten bad. The NYTimes site just shut down the feed.

The fact that the people of the united states took the high road, didn't fall victim to negative politicking and personal attacks, and elected a BLACK MAN to the highest possible position, most powerful man in the world, is a feat worth celebrating.

Regardless of which perspective you use, this IS a shining example, and this IS a turning point in the history of this young country.

Obama has a shitty-assed job ahead, and may well fail, but the COUNTRY made a huge stride today, it is starting to grow up.

It's the moment, along with the man. Never has symbolism meant so much. But, yes, he's got to prove himself...obviously.

But he and that idiot he picked cultivated that, so I have no sympathy for him at all.

He did look pretty disgusted at times. I am glad he was able to be gracious -- I was never in any danger of voting for him, but I always rather respected him. He lost my respect during this campaign. He gained a little back with that speech.

And how many people voted for him purely because of that idealistic notion? Probably a shit load I'd imagine. Especially in the younger voters. That I have a problem with.
