I've got to be at work at 9 a.m. but I'm too excited to sleep!

After six years of frustration this all feels so strange.

(Edited because I forgot it's already tomorrow where I live!)

It looks like it is very possible for the Dems to actually win the remaining 3 senate seats they need to take the senate. CNN just gave Missouri to the Dems. Webb is apparently ahead by 12000 votes now. And in Montana, after 65% of the precincts, the Dem is leading by 11000 votes. Hmmm.....

Apparently all the incumbent Dems have won too. I am interested in how the White House responds to these results.

Webb's lead in Virginia has jumped from about 2300 votes to around 5700! Absolutely incredible that two and a quarter million people can only differ by that number of votes. On CNN earlier they were talking about how recounts only change around 800 votes max, and that anything above that would indicate lots of problems with the initial count. A recount where 5700 votes changed sides would be extremely rare....

unbelievable night!!!!

tomorrow will be a beautiful day!

Yep. I love the image I'm getting of pouting Dubya too.

Tester is up by 11K with 65% reporting.
4% point lead.

He's probably going to win.
Likely down to Virginia.

Tester lead just moved to 3%. Will they even have a recount in Virginia with an 11000 vote difference?

Pretty quiet forum tonight from the conservative posters too.

They said on either CNN/FOX/MSNBC (I watch them all) that it had to be 1% (total vote) or within?...for the recount.

Yes, but will they bother if the difference is 10000 or so. The loser has to request the recount. It's within the recount variance and I suppose you have to do whatever you can to win.

Jeffrey Toobin, CNN analyst was saying that it's hardly worth the effort based on his experience with past recounts as a lawyer. He discussed one case separated by 300 or so votes and after a long drawn out recount, the winner ended up getting an extra 37 votes. So his point was unless the margin is pretty small, it won't make a difference anyway.

I think Webb's lead has shrunk a little over the past hour too.

Webb's lead down to 7400 now.

Tester lead down to 2%.

Pretty dramatic finish for sure.
