How exciting!!! I wish I had gotten more involved in campaigning. For some reason it didn't interest me back in the day....but now I kinda wish I had participated more.

Yeah I was surprised! At the Webb rally, my friend was interviewed by a Canadian reporter. He said "Does it hurt you to know that most of Canadians are afraid of Bush's agenda?"

You shouldn't be. We have a very shaky Conservative government here which will likely be forced into an election in the spring and if your electorate is shifting left, it will hurt them.

I HAVE those 20 extra years and then some.........there ARE good politians still out there .

part of it, you must know is how our campaigns are finances........ there's corruption in every [or just about} facet of life..........in small to big amounts.depending on...the rules/ the inclusive or un inclusiveness of the times/the personalities of the individual people etc........

do I GET cynical, oh sure. However, i rebalance towards my sometimes more optimistic outlook much of the time.

The early returns are a bit surprising so far. The Democrats appear to be doing well.

But it's way too early still...

It's amazing that as liberal as Massachusetts is, it's the first time in quite awhile that a democrat will be leading the state. It'll be interesting to see what this means for my state.

Saw that as well.

I love watching election night coverage. Always have since 1992, which was the first year I really got into things (we had a mock election at my high school and Clinton won by a landslide ).
