It looks like Romney just called Obama.

i'm just glad that tonight proved what i know to be true ... the world only spins forward.

i go to sleep more included, and more equal, than when i woke up this morning.

and it is a big deal.
Congratulations, Irvine. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am for you right now .

It's been fun/interesting/crazy, everyone! We'll do it again in four years. In the meantime, hopefully from here on out we'll have further positive results and people will actually try and continue to work together when possible. I really don't think that's too much to hope for, is it?

It was a good and positive speech.

Agreed! That's exactly why I think Christie will be their 2016 candidate should he want to run, which might not happen. He doesn't need that batshit segment, he could actually win states like New Jersey & New Hampshire. I'm not sure about my state of New York turning republican for the first time since Reagan for Christie, but its certainly possible if he didn't run against Cuomo or Hillary.

Romney had a good speech...maybe if he sounded that human-like more often, he would've had a better shot. Maybe it was because the pressure from his party was gone? Not as good as McCain's, McCain is much more personable though.

Glad to see the crowd was classier than McCain's in '08.

Even Romney gave up before Florida gave up wanting to be a red state. The lead has gotten even larger, almost 50,000 now! And only 2% of votes remain! Jesus, Alaska is going to have their results in before this ass-backwards state that uses 30-year outdated technology to count their votes makes a decision.

I can see them in the Miami Dade offices right now.

Uno. Dos. Tres.

Tres votos por Senor Obama! Haces una llamada por CNN.

Uno. Dos. Tres. Quatro. Cinco.

Cinco votos por Senor Romney! Haces una llamada por CNN.

More fireworks.

My neighborhood tends to be kind of fireworks-happy. There were some on Halloween, which is just frigging irritating.

I don't mind these. (As long as they aren't doing them at 3:00 in the morning again.)

Tomorrow begins the Right Wing effort to turn Benghazi into Obama's Monica.

Yeah I noticed that too, that was nice. Even though McCain has a nicer speech, though maybe that's why...he mentioned Obama more often I think.

The governor's race is pretty tight ... I don't think anyone was really excited about either candidate.

Rick Steves! Pushing for pot since (insert year here).

Local news just showed a handful of people smoking up outside downtown. Take it easy there, hippies ... it ain't legal for another 30 days or so.
