Not to rain on anyone's parade but when you cast your vote in today's presidential election, remember you're not taking part in a nationwide popular vote, but rather helping decide who your state's Electoral College delegates support. So it's really those states with the most electoral votes that decide the outcome.

Very interesting poll on "betavote.com" , have a look.

If McCain wins his suit against Virginia, we may not know the winner until Nov 14ish because of a certain number of troops not receiving absentee ballots in time.

I think Obama will win.... I tried to vote but they wouldn't let me. I'm 45 miles away from my registered voting station and I wont be in that area till the weekend. I tried to go to the local voting station over here. After calling it in to see if I could vote over here, they said no. Ohh well.

Hey everybody. I've been away for a while.

I think the O-man wins this one big in the popular vote but barely in the electoral count--but that's just a guess. I strongly believe that the county-by-county map will be as red as it ever was, with only the densely-populated areas being blue.

I voted early this morning. There were about 150 people in line with me, and I have to say that about 85% of us were extremely depressed. It was so obvious. But we all showed up, fulfilled our civic duty, and went off to work. Gotta earn as much as we can now, before the new achievement penalties kick in next year.

2 things,
1, Destroyer, which home? :) McCain's got like 14...
2, I have to give McCain credit, his concession speech was quite good. I think it may be one of his best ever.


I was a supporter of Obama, so I am pleased, and I do have to respect McCain, he does deserve it. Palin is a waste of time IMO though. Honestly, I think she may have hurt McCain more than helped. Too damned divisive, and talk about inexperienced... Plus, the comment about community organizers... I have 3 names of black community organizers that inspired more people than Palin could ever manage. Malcom X, Louis Farrakan, and Dr Martin Luther King Jr. By definition, those 3 were all "community organizers" with "real responsibilities." Sorry, been bitin that one back for a while.

Palin didn't look good for McCain. The VP choice was the most important decision he could make up to that point and it was a bad choice which of course makes you wonder how many other "bad choices" he would make as President. Palin was/is a joke and McCain paid for it. These folks are pretty happy about it though:

I don't think Hillary is happy at all. She now has no shot in '12. If Obama is any good, he'll get a 2nd term. If he isn't, there will be a ground swell on the Republican side, especially with a Democratic Congress...

Hello again, everybody. And greetings to those who greeted me yesterday! :wave:

I was a lot more upset about this when I went to bed than when I woke up at 1:30 am to check the final results.

A lot of times when I'm having an insomnia attack I'll listen to a BBC radio feed in bed thru a pocket-PC. It's cool to hear the morning news from Europe. You get a lot of financial info about what's going to happen to our own stock market in the coming day.

Anyway, until recently I had NO IDEA how negatively we have been viewed on the world stage since about 2002. The entire rest of the world is rejoicing about this election result. Their perception of us has been that we've become a bully, almost a rogue nation under W's leadership. For now at least, they love us again.

I never loved W. But he got my vote because I hated the alternatives. I think for the most part, 80% of us have been voting AGAINST someone since 1988, rather than FOR the guy we really wanted.

Yesterday more people actually voted FOR someone they love rather than against someone they hate. That's cool whether you agree with the people who won or not.

There's a chance that this could turn out well for all of us. I have no choice but to be optimistic and wish the O-man all the best. We can't handle another terrorist attack, and any assassination attempt would do irreparable harm to this nation's psyche. It may be glowing and positive right now, but it's VERY fragile. We need EVERYBODY positive if we're going to climb out of this rut.

As a small business owner, I'm scared to death of what may be coming. But I'll keep working, I don't know what else to do.

As an investor, I don't think that things can get any worse than they are right now. Hopefully we've touched bottom. I am encouraged when I look at what the market did from 1966-1974. The graph is almost exactly what we've seen since 2001. Sort of a bear market, a bad war going on, an energy crisis, and an extremely unpopular president.

Yahoo has a really cool DJIA graph where you can select any span of dates.

Check out what happened in 1975-76. It's awesome.

We've been here several times before and come out of it stronger. We're Americans. We kick ass.

Thank ya, thank ya vera much... :elvis3:

Alaska needs her to be their next senator.Truth is Palin doesn't really deserve this. I mean, she was thrust into this position, ready or not by the McCain organization. She wasn't properly vetted and she was there only cause she was supposed to seize the Hillary voters. Old school method of thinking, they really thought Hillary voters were voting for her only cause she was a woman?. Hillary has substance, Palin does not. Personally I think it was an insult to the women of this country to put Palin up there and think women would automatically vote for her like they were basing this whole thing on the candidates sex rather than credentials. Palin looked good but as soon as she opened her mouth...........stupid stuff came out.

I agree there was much more of voting for Obama than voting against McCain, which was good to see. It's also nice to see the rest of the world happy about our election results. Whether we want to admit it or not, Americans have to share the world with billions of other people, and we're more likely to have things go the way we want them if the rest of the world isn't pissed off at us.

I've said it before elsewhere, but I see parallels between now and the Seventies, and I'd like to see Obama emerge as a leader like Reagan who will repair America's psyche and help restore our confidence.

On a related note, I was at a T.G.I. Fridays with a friend when the news broke that Obama had won, and when McCain got up to do his concession speech (sp?) a bunch of the bar's drunker patrons got up to boo him...which really pissed me off...because the man already lost the election, and he was doing a very well planned and gentlemanly speech, and these jagoffs had to get up and ruin the moment for everyone else there. Ok, so your candidate won, good for him, now STFU!
