America Votes – Election Night 08 – Are You Watching the Results?

UPDATE: The West Coast polls have closed…and Barack Obama is being called the winner in the presidential race! An historic moment, to be sure.

Senator McCain has called Barack Obama to concede…

McCain is now giving a very eloquent concession speech, acknowledging the historic moment.

And it’s around midnight, ET and Obama is beginning his acceptance speech…and it was an inspiring, powerful speech. I never thought I’d be alive to see an African American elected president. Incredible. What a night. I think Obama has an extraordinary opportunity to bring people together. I think he can do it. I feel hopeful for the first time in a long time…

ETA: Battleground states going to Obama: Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida…


I’m settled in for the night, watching the American election results.

This is going to be a nail-biter folks. It’s going to be a long night, and I’m going to be watching to the bitter end.

How about you?

I’m going to make an exception and allow political talk in this thread. Just remember the guidelines. Oh, you know the drill.

I’ll update this post with any significant news…

Off topic, yes, but I can’t think about AI or anything else right now…Tip: Chat would be a good place to gather tonight.

I just added the Obama/McCain speech…after the JUMP…
