    Last year I cried when Ohio fell to Bush. Tonight I have hope that she will redeem herself. Fight for what's right Ohio! We stand with you.

    Ohio is in the books. It's officially "lights out" McCain. Start getting together that "submission" speech.

    The count now for Obama shows 199 votes but it should be 200 if we sum up the votes in all theblue states. MSNBC is reporting 200? Why do we have a 1 vote difference?
    This commet does not realy fit here, just adding here to bring to attention and to get a quick answer.

    The reason for that is because Maine's voting is quite different. So instead of getting all 4 electoral votes, he only got 3.

  12. Where's Joe

    So I guess one Joe the Plummer voted for McCain, but a few thousand other Joe the Plummers voted for Obama. Keep it rolling President Obama.

    I am a FORMER Republican, and a truck driver. & Joe the unlicensed plumber? I have a license. After the Bush years, I do not see how anyone can be a proud republican. Reformed Democrat is my new style. BTW. I campaigned for President Obama on the CB Radio.
    Be well all,

    Gee, what a waste of money with all those Wright's TV ads. McCain used Hillary playbook to the bitter end. If an fact McCain's internal polls indicate he was losing or had lost, he still chose to go negative to the bitter end. He will be remember like Hillary for the horrible campaign they ran.

  22. Voted McCain

    Obama won all the States where most of the lazy, homeless, and dugs people are. Good for them Obama will spread the wealth so they can stay home and do more drugs; make more babies so they can draw welfare and food stamps.
