Congrats Bobfr and Happy Birthday to your wife!

BREAKING: Virginia SBE pauses reporting of results until 8pm because of long lines still at polls.— WVEC 13NEWS (@13News) November 07, 2012
wow! this should bode well for us!
Why would Mark Knoller be tweeting about the number of Obama news conferences at this time?????
Our “news” media——gagaroo!
He did that about 45 minutes ago – I think he stated about 232 news conferences and interviews…
Eating dinner and watching Fat Albert…
The world- here comes Ohio to put PBO over the top
I’m trying to remain calm, but Good Gordon’s Gin! Come on PBO!!!
Reading the word ‘calm’ in this post, put a smile on my face … and no butterflies …

Probably in the bathroom.
I’m playing WoW to calm my nerves. I feel so bipolar right now. I’m FIRED UP and have so much OPTIMISM in my fellow countrymen to not let the douchebags take over… but I’m also suffering from PTSD from the Bush years, so I expect them to steal it.
HAL SPARKS. SO SEXY. ON CURRENT RIGHT NOW.
Lawdee Lawd! I wish, I had a spine of steel like PBO!
okay I tuned into msnbc online… yowzers “too close to call” yah right.
I’m unpacking.. little by little.. but is keeping my anxiety at bay… plus I forgot I packed all this cool stuff
One thing is certain, the media is not going to call this election until the West Coast states are done voting. So settle in for another three and a half hours, friends. All in all the preliminary exit polls and early returns are hopeful.

Voting is expected to continue till 9:00 in Va., because of the number of people in line, no results expected until then.
This is EXCEPTIONALLY good news. Though I have seen a tweet that a precinct in Prince William County has been called for PBO.

How is it possible to remain calm? I am normally levelheaded and sensible but I am freaking out. Until we get some good news that at least may be determinative I may not be able to slow down my pounding heart.
And no, i am not going to turn off the TV.
Hey! I have not commented for a while but I had to tonight! OMG I’m so scared! Confident but scared! My heart is racing! I want good news to calm me down! *Shaking*
“How is it possible to remain calm?”
because I personally am confident of a PO win. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a blow out.
I’m not calm either as many of the states seem to be showing Romney ahead in the count right now to me. I am praying, and deep breathing. I am here with you all.
Tell me about it. I have not eaten all day and am so wound up, sure can’t eat now!
So any big news ?
Just saw teann projecting joe manchin (D) a wnner in WV.
It’s not news per se, but the news media here sucks.
I’m so proud of my 13 yr old son right now… he’s been playing a game online w/ his online friends.. and he’s yelling out election results to me at the same time via his online friends- who by the way are all for President Obama too
This is fantastic!!
actually turns out its youtube results they’re following.. so proud of him though.

Although they haven’t changed the map

AND Joe Biden wins his homestate – Romney can’t decide his home state – but loses them all – Ryan will lose his home state
Those that know PBO and VP love them – those that know R/R no love there
Fascinating to me that there was never more focus placed on the fact that willard is UTTERLY REJECTED in Massachusetts where HE WAS GOVERNOR. HE WAS THEIR GOVERNOR. HE WS THEIR GOVERNOR. The only signifcant, elected, government experience he has had and? The citizens of MASSACHUSETTS have NO USE FOR HIM.
I agree; why is nothing made of that? That is huge!! Just like Palin now .. AK has no use for her; those that know her best. Romney the same.
You know. To me that would be a major factor in my decision. What history does he bring? Nothing much by the looks of it. They called him feefee
All battlegrounds “too close to call”———aggghhhhhhhhh
CT, DC, DE, IL, RI, MA, MD, ME all called for Obama. AL for Romney.— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) November 07, 2012
NC will stay ‘OBAMA Blue’ – my prediction at this point. The fact that it’s ‘too close to call’ is really a major blow to Rove, the Kochs, etc given the vast amount of $$$$ they poured into that State.
Pres. Obama wins MD, IL, MA, CT, ME, RI, DE, DC. He now has 64 electoral votes.— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012

Note to self:
Keep Calm and Obama On!
After this chocolate ice cream, startin’ on the wine!
PBO has an early lead in New Hampshire according to BBC (which seems to be a bit behind everyone else).
I’ll be very curious to see where the popular vote total comes in the next couple of days. I previously posted about not seeing much R/R excitement in my red TX city. Went to do errands a bit ago and drove by 5 polling places. Of the 5, only one looked at all busy. My city will stay red here for awhile but just not seeing the love here for R/R VERY different from 2004 and 2008.
I have not turned the tube on yet. Just cruising around the blogs. Decided that listening to the pundits will only increase my stress level so keep them away until later when I can watch them fall over when it is called for PBO. Just need to echo so many, Chips thanks for all of your work and providing this place for us. I do not go out on election night (at least since I went crazy about Obama) just don’t trust my emotions so it is better to be home. So I’ll be hanging around the night. I don’t think it will be as bad as last time but still nervous.
Me too, Foxfire!
Pls God, I have done ALL I could to get PBO over the top!!!
Holding on to my good book right now, I’m just shook up !!
Praying is the only thing that’s keeping my heart from giving up! We WILL do this #Obama2012
Freaking out. I delurked in order to freak out. Chipsticks, whatever happens you have been amazing, dedicated, unrelenting, tenacious and heroic.
Now I’m going back to freaking out. I know he’s going to win. He’s going to win!
I’m with ya WoS, trying to stay calm ….. but largely failing!

Man I am so excited and nervous!
Bill Nelson (D) wins (keeps) his seat in FL. MA is too close to call but Warren is leading Brown. CT is too close to call but Murphy is leading McMahon.
I’m taking Nelson win as encouraging for Obama—that race had tightened. “Thousands” said to still be in line in Miami-Dade—-voting expected to go till the wee hours.
Wonderful! McMahon deserves to get slammed but good. And so does Brown for that matter. Shut em down!

In fact, my whole plan has changed, was gonna put together a smoked salmon, toasted baguette platter with the red onion, capers, dill, sour cream and/or cream cheese, etc. with white wine and later some prosecco. Tummy got butterflies and that felt more like an after-the-win supper, so having bourbon instead with two muffalettas for me and my son being delivered momentarily from the deli.
Don’t you have one stored in one of those hollowed out books?
*gasp* You offend me! I have gin in those books!

Not sure, but evidently they had massive numbers of folk who registered and voted today – all very good for PBO
If everyone who went to his rally voted – he’s already won
Haven’t commented yet, too busy running around the web. Not watching TV so basing everything on what I read. Looking good, although may take a little longer than I thought.
