Alcohol doesn't hurt, either.

I haven't been able to get on the site all day...so this may have already been discussed...but that little clip of Obama casting his ballot with his wife and girls this morning made me teary eyed....and I can honestly say I have never felt teary eyed about ANY politician before EVER! GO OBAMA!!

That lady is glowing. She looks radioactive.

She looks like the ghost of Obi-Wan in Return of the Jedi.

There's a pattern here...for the states for which everyone and their mother has known the outcome from day one(i.e. all of New England, New York, California, etc for Obama and Texas, most of the southeast, etc for McCain), they are projected as soon as the polls close. For the states that are tightly contested, networks won't call them for a good while. The lesson of the Florida debacle of 2000(referring to the networks calling it for Gore and then having to retract it) still has influence. It's going to be a while before they call Virginia, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, etc.

ABC's coverage is hard to look at - they have a row for one state, president, and then another row beneath for a senate race, usually from another state.

It's not a good method for people doing drive-by viewing, like me.
