Any positive reports from the other side, besides the thugs in Philly?

TV obviously was not in the living rooms of Americans during FDR’s time.

So I would change your answer from train to ‘time machine’ or ‘transport beam’ etc.

Biden is really really dumb. And I mean that with all respect.

I agree with the OH/PA analysis, but I question whether VA/OH is still valid. VA is so “top heavy” in the north with DC Beltway libs, immigrants, and other assorted socialists that I think it’s going more the way of MD. We may still pull it out this year, but it’s getting bluer and bluer every day.

“...is your group considered liberal?...”

I would say yes, in general and under normal circumstances. I’m definitely the only conservative and the only one who voted for Bush 4 years ago.

I live right on the NY/PA border. I voted in NY this morning and brought someone else to the polls and there was barely anyone at the polls.

Two PA friends of mine claimed they waited in line for 40 minutes, longer than ever before, and the people in line weren’t what you’d think were Obama voters.

Of course, this is rural Pennsylvania. We can only hope it offsets Philthadelphia and the urban areas of Pittsburgh. Let’s hope they’re well versed in Obama’s coal strategy.

our votes do not count there

I will literally SOB if we win today. And then I will celebrate.

No time for that. McCain's victory is just one hurtle passed, not and "all clear," signal. Moveon, ACORN, etc. need to be exposed and permanently linked to the Democratic party before they Bushify McCain. A McCain win will only be a short reprieve. Time to go on the offense and push back the growing socialistic tendencies in DC. The last thing we need is a reversion to the Bob Michael era.

By the time this ends tonight I will have gained five pounds in nervous eating..........I started off this morning with a griled cheese sandwich & soup at 5 am, a few cookies at 8, I did have a reheated Lean Cuisine for lunch LOL) and now a large plate of nachos & salsa - a lot of food in one day for someone who weighs 100 lbs.

How many calories in a glass of wine? I think 100 or so.. so maybe after the sun goes down a bit more.

He works very hard at it. How else to explain a near perfect record of being on the wrong side of every foreign policy issue in the last 30 years. And this passes as being the Democrat foreign policy expert!

“If Obama takes PA and OH he can win. If he doesn’t take them both, it will be next to impossible for him.”

—wrong - he can win without taking PA but must win OH and FL. Of course he will have to win NV, CO and (fill in the blank)

Encouraging. It’ll be interesting to see how Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and Virginia go early. If Obama wins all four, its over. If McCain wins all four ... it might be over.

What?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!!??!?!?!??!?!?!!? If McCain wins PA, OH, FL and VA you can go to bed. Same thing if the Obamessiah wins all four (which will NOT occur).

I’m in CA and voted for McCain this morning to counteract an 0bamazombie vote. I know our guy can’t win the state, but every vote counts in the “popular vote” argument that’s sure to arise.

Anyone considering staying home today, please change your mind and go vote for McCain/Palin to send a message.

The reliable analysts know this. For example, if a GOP candidate takes PA, he is going to take OH, because OH polls 5 points higher for a Pub candidate than PA

Thank you for your analysis. I don't mean to pick at it, rather I think you'll agree with me that this is a time for Pennsylvania where an alignment of gravitational forces are making their vote much more similar to Ohio's than five points.

I’m not a licensed architect but I do have a BS degree in Architecture from a private school in Michigan.

To give you an example, one of our studio projects that we had to design was a monument to the Kent State massacre. As an outspoken conservative I can assure you it was four years of hell. That was in 1992-1996 or so I can only imagine what its like now.

Another observation: Despite the constant talk about racism there were only 2-3 black students in the program at the time.

Absolutely. It will either be a night of elation and joy or total despondency. Booze goes well with either of those emotions.

An African-American friend of mine here in Ohio, who he and I always "argue" politics" was going to vote for Obama. He called me minutes ago to tell me he couldn't do it. I had changed his mind and he couldn't bring himself to vote for Obama.

Good for you!

I have a gut feeling there are going to be a lot of changed minds before this day is through.

...Plus what about Michigan?

Heavy turnout here in West Michigan, a real strong red portion of the state. Hope it’s enough to overcome Detoilet. I’m mildly hopeful! Especialy when the liberal Ann Arbor newspaper endorsed Mac.

and the rising stock market...

Don't get confused by the market, which was already in big time rally mode the past week. The stock market has reasons to rally if Obama wins, at least initially. The market wants a "clean" win, with no controversy. The market also wants no 60 vote Senate majority. Chuck Schumer said this morning he did not think Dems would get it. The market rallied sharply afterward, despite a horrendous economic report.

You know, all I know is I did my best. i delivered my entire small family and got 20 other people to vote for mccain.

My mother and father who have never voted for a pubbie for president before voted for mccain, which was due to my nagging.

I know my state,,,,west virginia, is going to vote right.

Ive got some glenlivet special blend scotch and Im going to drink some of it tonight no matter what. I may even eat a couple of pieces of pizza.

Anyway, my stomach is so eat up today with worry I dont know whether to kill myself or go bowling,

That’s true, but the main reason I vote here in MA is that if I did not, I would feel like a hypocrite, having posted lots of messages on FR (and several to relatives and friends) opposing Obama but not bothering to vote myself.

P.S. I’m a “Three Kids’ Dad”

Doesn’t matter in Philly. How many whites live there anymore?

Our family stopped there last spring on our educational vacation of DC to see the historic sites. Except for the actual historic sites (heavily patrolled by thuggish black ‘security’), the city was AWFUL. I mean, we had kind of heard stories, but this was BAD. My husband insisted we leave the city even before dinner time so we didn’t get stuck in traffic or after dark. My husband says he hopes the kids remembered everything they saw there, because we were never going back for a second look!
