Ha! Do I ever remember! I was so hooked on what was going on that night...stayed up all night.

So did I. Hubby went to bed and I awoke him to say GWB won at around 1:00 or 2:00 a.m. By the time he finally awoke he was shocked I was still seated where he left, now crying that Gore didn't concede.

NBC has called Kentucky for McCain and Vermont for Obama. I live in Vermont - the polls just closed at 7, how they can they call it already? (though I know for sure Planet Moonbat here would go for Obama).

On Fox New's main page, they have an interactive map of all the states that when you put your cursor over a state it gives you the total votes so far. Vermont has ZERO votes (none for anyone, not just THE Zero). How can you call a state (not that we'd expect Vermont to go Red) with zero votes so far?

Oh, now they're calling West Virginia for McCain with ZERO votes in.

It’s not looking good in IN. Vigo County went for Bush 52-46.

It’s going to Obama 56-42 with 90% reporting.

Bush won IN by 20% in 2004, so that's consistent with a 10% win for McCain.

Gilmore never had a chance from day one so it’s not exactly risky for them to call it for Warner as soon as the polls closed. Now it’s M.Warner/J.Webb in the Senate - pretty disgusting.

Team McCain said ignore the early exit polls because they must have a scientific idea as well.

==Rush said same thing—it is absolutely vital that west coast and mountain states VOTE regardless of what the TV or radio is telling them!!

I have no idea why they are watching Vigo County (Terre Haute) which is democrat. I don’t know why that county is a bellwether. It’s Evan Bayh’s home town.

No, it’s not. That’s consistent with a dead-even race. (10% swing both ways)

According to Fox it sounds like the Obama camp isn’t thrilled with their NC numbers.

I've been hoping the Obamafolk have been reading their own literature and press releases rather than tuning in to reality.

Here's hoping...

The pleasure is all mine.

This portends to be an historic evening here on FR. There are PUMA’s onboard, old-timers from past battles, and a slew of newbies.

Hell, I lurked for over three years before I signed on, and now I hope and pray our Republic survives this election.

Let’s Roll.

Indiana was a state with lots of fraudulent registrations. Any victory dependent on these fraud states is going to be challenged in court.

Right, we knew Gary would make it closer due to the black vote.
Expect many red states with large black cities to make McCain’s win closer than Bush, like Atlanta will surely make McCain’s win more norrow than with Bush.

Do not be surprised if IN goes Blue this year. There are an awful lot of white, upper middle and middle-class, suburban professional, moderate Republicans(especially women) who are splitting and voting OBama this year. I am surrounded by them and they all are pro-choice and voting against Sarah. Add in the fraud in Center Township/Indianapolis and “The Region” area around Gary and it may not be a good night here for McCain.

Florida does indeed close at 7:00 PM but remember that Florida sits in two time zones. So, technically, Florida closes at 7:00 PM Central time which is 8:00 PM Eastern.

In essence, Florida closes at 8:00PM East Coast Elitist Time.

It will be an early night if Obama wins Indiana. It will be over.

Indiana and Kentucky with their early returns both show how things will go for McCain. Bush won both with 60% in 2004. McCain is running 10% points back in IN and 5% back in KY what Bush did. These are real returns, no polls. Unless these numbers change in these early states, it is out go the lights for McCain.

Lookit all. Bush won Indiana by 400K+ votes in 2004 (20%). If Obummer gets a swing of 200K votes in Indiana for a win, it’s going to be an early night...

Any early leads in FL is good news because the conservative bedrock of FL is in the panhandle. We in the Florida Panhandle will deliver all 27 electoral votes for Sarah if the rest of the state can stay nose to nose with the RATS.

You know, there may be one vote to keep the dems from a filibuster-proof senate, so I’m glad he won. You should be too, unless you just want to burn the whole place down.
