I watched that last night and it got me all emotional. So wonderful to see her on TV-she sounded fantastic. I felt a lot better after watching this .

I don't discount that this ending up in the courts is a distinct possibility, but if Biden sweeps the necessary states then that possibility lessens. Orange man will have no leg to stand on.
Agreed. Take the wind out of his blustery sails and he'll slink back to the White House the way he did after his pathetic Tulsa rally.

Will he still grumble and rant about how "unfair" the election was on Twitter or at press conferences or whatever? Oh, absolutely. Losing certainly won't shut him up, much as we'd love for that to happen. But I think if he sees a decisive loss tonight his next focus is going to be on trying to find a way to slip out of the White House, either before January or in January, so as to avoid the crushing legal issues he knows will be coming.

It's one thing if you see a margin of 0.2% in ONE state that that ONE state is the only thing that matters - then yes, we're headed for litigation and everyone and their brother will become an opinionated quasi-lawyer overnight. But it really does not appear that this will be the case. If Trump wants to declare victory and then litigate in 6 different jurisdictions, causing unrest in the streets, possible widespread general strikes, riots and who knows what else, the markets will crater and Wall Street will step in. The Republicans in Congress are all self-interested pieces of shit, with a not-small-number of them already planning for 2024. You will quickly see massive defections in an effort for some spineless asshole who sat idly by for the last 4 years to come across as the "voice of reason."
Also an excellent point. Yeah, considering how many prominent Republicans and Repubican-leaning organizations have spoken out against Trump, I imagine they'll have a few things to say as well.

Whatever helps stop Trump from going ahead with his "I will fight this!" BS, let's make it happen.

Like others work is pretty busy for me so I don't have a lot of time to dive deep into the darkness of the internet (besides the blueness of Interference....)

I've also got a date in a few hours to help get away from the TV and looking at the phone. If Hinge is any indicator, Southern California will go for Biden easily.....

I’ll choose to believe that this NYC sunset is a harbinger of good things tonight.

If FL ends with a Republican +2 electorate (which Nate Silver is saying would be good for Biden), the main thing it would show me is that the polls seem to be accurate this year, which would be good news.

Nevada also looks good, I think. From what Ralston is saying, today's turnout may not be sufficient to reverse the early voting lead.

Edit: more on FL.

And they delayed by 45 min, so longer than expected.

6:30-7:30 is the bedtime routine for our toddler here so it will take me through the most anxious waiting period...

Something I was thinking about the judicial disputes. My guess is that the SC may try to put its finger on the scale if it's a very, very close race (like 2000). But if not, and knowing that the SC is so political, don't you think that part of them would actually not be unhappy to see orange man go now that they have majorities to overturn Roe v Wade and ACA? Ruling in ways that the media will describe as pro-Dem (although these lawsuits are just so bad) would help keep the so-called public trust in the Court, which would totally undermined if they are seen as partisan now. And then in a couple of weeks they can start the work they really care about.


Edit:

And looool:
