    Somewhere in Ohio they reported that voters stood in line 13 hours, I think that is amazing.

    There have been fantastic gains in the Senate as well, and I don't mean in just pure numbers, but in terms of some great personnel replacing guys who were past their prime. I like Obama too, as far as Democratic gains go (he and Ford are two fantastic reps for the opposing side).

    Vitter, DeMint, Burr, Isakson, and very hopefully a great young Senate candidate in Thune (maybe the brightest of the bunch).

    It's hard to get better than Hume! But I'm also a fan of MSNBC's coverage, which includes the coverage of the last couple of months. They've done a great job, and since I'm a avid viewer of Scarborough Country, it's easy to watch Joe on After Hours and of course, gotta like Chris Matthews.

    Most of the district which haven't reported yet have voted heavy Republican historically, and tonight... which is part of why I said I expected him to come back and win Iowa.

    Some guy on MSNBC just made a great point. He mentioned that whenever a challenger has unseated an incumbent, it has always been an "intriuging personality". In other words, there was also something very unique and very interesting about the the candidate. You can't really say that about John Kerry.

    I could see that in Clinton, no way with Kerry.

    CNN had Barack Obama on earlier tonight. I know he's still fairly new on the scene and hasn't been subject to much scrutiny yet, but the more I see this guy, the more I like him. I hope he ends up being the real thing.

    I was eating cake when Obama won. When his wife said "My Babies Daddy" I almost choked. :MandJ:

    I'm not saying one person will win in the Presidential Race yet, its still too early to call, but it looks to be a huge night for the GOP overall.

    I'm watching MSNBC right now at almost 1:20am and there's a lady STILL claiming that there are still thousands of people in line waiting to vote and she wouldn't cede it to Bush yet. I'm not sure why she thinks this, but she said it nonetheless.

    Hopefully I'm wrong about Thune and he becomes a shinging star. I'm no Daschle fan, but I haven't been at all impressed by Thune at all. Maybe some of that comes from knowing a few of his supporters (some of the most inept human beings I've ever had the displeasure to meet). I dunno.

    <Edit: I should note that I'm from SD, so please- if you're a Thune supporter- no offense intended. I'm talking about only those folks I've personally met here.>

    Was her name Susan something? I saw somebody like that on Fox News a couple of hours ago.

    I can't remember which station I was watching, flipping back and forth too much, but one commentator talked about how Obama lost his race for the House last go 'round because he would kowtow to the strong African-American machine in Chicago.

    And that he won this time because he was able to go statewide. If that's the case, he seems like an excellent communicator, if he can build up a rep in the Senate he'll have huge future.
