I think I'm the only Kerry supporter posting. Technically, I'm an independent, not a registered Democrat. Perhaps U2democrat just doesn't feel like posting right now. I hope she is OK. I'm leaving town today, and I'm looking forward to the change in scenery I'll have for a few days. I think that it's not inappropriate that my trip is partially a Catholic pilgrimage.

Let's hope this get wrapped up quickly. Bush has about 150,000 vote advantage in Ohio. Those 20 electoral votes would bring him the election.

I'm sorry I missed all of this last night.

I went to bed around 11:30, when it was 199/207.

This election has fucking sucked, right up till the end.

I can only hope and pray that Mr. Bush will somehow learn a few things from his first four years, such as humility, better listening skills, more openness to accept constructive criticism, more honesty w/ the American people and with himself. I sincerely hope another term will not increase his arrogance.

Frankly I don't hold out much hope for that

That's just based upon my observations of him, far more so than it is my political bias.. Sometimes people can surprise you, so perhaps there's a shred of possibility

Maybe even a better grasp of the English language.

No matter what though, I really hope that if it is indeed him that is chosen, that he will repair all the bridges he burned with other countries....

I am sure that he can piss on the ashes and continue forward.

they couldn't find 500 votes in florida, and they'r expecting to find 150,000 in ohio? it's over johnny... stick a fork in 'em. conceed. don't play this out.

it was an "outrage" that gore lost when he won the popular vote by a meeger 500,000... bush just won the popular vote by 3.5 million. the will of the people has spoken... end this now, john kerry. end this now.

Kerry's position would be stronger if the popular vote was in his favor.

At some point, the refusal to concede will only damage Kerry/Edwards.

Kerry probably could care less - he has a safe seat in the senate and a nice nest egg to retire on.

Edwards should be more cautious. He may just have a bright political future ahead of him.

There are no words to describe the disgust, the heartbreak, the anger I feel right now.

I think this election has turned me off politics for good. And there are going to be some BIG changes in my life. I'm getting rid of cable TV, or as much of it as I can get rid of and still keep my broadband connection. There is NO WAY I'm going to watch cable news, or any news for that matter. I'll miss Keith Olbermann, who I think is the best thing on television, but I won't be able to stand watching the braying jackasses on Hardball and shows of their kind.

I'm also going to stop reading newspapers, news magazines, and non-fiction books about politics or current events. If I read, it has to be fluffy novels with happy endings.

Oh. One more thing. I'm going to find the most Christian fundamental church I can find on Long Island and attend a service or two. It's time to drink the Kool-Aid. It's time to embrace their way of life. It's the only way life in America will be worth living.

Goodbye, reality-based living. From now on, everything that happens to me is the Lord's will, and who am I to question God?

I agree 100%. I supported Bush, but I Definitely Do Not support him completely. I'd be hoping for all of those things if John Kerry was elected as well, they're simply traits of a good president. Good post!
