What a night.
Hang in there – we still have a ways to go. If you trust your alarm, take a short nap and rejoin in an hour.
CJ, every time I see you I’m tempted to say ‘stop running and have a seat’. It just seems like you are always rushing somewhere and I can’t keep up. 3:41am, aren’t you sleepy?
Hey fellow 1st. I am everywhere.
Of course Chips went with Man U colors.
Closer and Closer!!!
Now they finally call Elizabeth Warren for real!
I am sooooooooo happy!!!

Pres. Obama has now won three of Romney's home states – Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire. #Election2012— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012
And I think you can put his car elevator state of Ca. in that loss column too. Also lose Ryan’s home state of Wi.
I want Ryan to join the ranks of the unemployed tonight.
Me too. Why, oh why couldn’t cantor lose?
Oh yes, me too. And no unemployment checks either.
Isn’t Ryan already a member of the 47%, since he took social security?
Well no, because it’s perfectly okay for his type to take government handouts.
And Pres. Obama has won three of the four states I’ve lived in: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. I’m sure that matters – Ha! Only Florida to go!
I consider this an Irish omen.
Feeling better!!!! I want it over tonight, as soon as my state of California is called.
Deep breaths! We’re all doing fine, things going according to plan!
So the #VultureVoucher2012 ticket lose all their "home" states MA/MI/NH/WI. Go home guyz. You're toast.— (@amk4obama) November 07, 2012
Sounding good to me, amk!!
They still have Paris…
@amk4obama It's telling when the people that know you, won't vote for you.— Uberfemme (@theuberfemme) November 07, 2012

Love these reports!!!
2 pickups for us, right?
Tammy Duckworth wins!
How is Walsh going to pay his child support??
I was thinking the same thing! He’s UNEMPLOYED! Better not even THINK of asking for $$ from the govt for ANYTHING!
Woot! Go Tammy!!!
Good riddance forever, Crazy Hothead Teabagger Joe!
+ a gazillion
Hey, who called Tammy D’s win? Don’t see anything on MSNBC….
Twitter. . . checking again!
Chicago Trib has Tammy at 55.5%, Walsh 44.4% with 37% reporting
Great . . . I really want to put this ^%^*(^ down!
I don’t think it was called as yet. Sorry for the misinformation!
Perfect. He earned it.

Hello, TODville! I got home about half an hour ago from knocking on doors and calling. Fired UP! I checked the post here a couple of times from my phone, but it was too awkward to post. I’m have some shrimp to dip, waiting for my jambalaya pasta, and I’ve got salsa and chips to keep me through the evening. My two closest Dem. friends aren’t home tonight; I’m glad I have you to celebrate with. I don’t have cable – does anyone have a good suggestion for watching the results online? I understand they’ve already called Michigan for PBO – Yay! Chrysler gave it’s workers the day off to vote – guess Mitt pissed off the wrong company!!
Thank you maryl for keeping at it till the last minute. Now time to sit back and enjoy the fruit of your labors.
Inspired by everyone here! When I asked “Have you had a chance to vote today, one person answered “When is it on television?” – Sorry, still have to go in person! What a hoot!
The Senate is turning more and more Democratic—Elizabeth Warren Joe Donnely YaY!!
*drags ass in thread*
I feel like a rented mule, beat up shoe, and a dog’s chewed bone all combined. Super long, exhausting, but encouraging day working polls. So much to tell y’all, but please know that my little precinct represented big time for our President. I’m gonna take a long hot shower, get something hot to drink and some chocolate to eat, and settle in with TOD and a few other online buddies (don’t know if I want to look at anybody on tv yet).
Be back in a bit….
Sounds fabulous! You did good:)
GOOD WORK PJ, thanks so much for all you’ve done!
No need to turn on tv …. just log in here and with your other online buddies as you said. Less stress, more fun.
Indiana Senate race Mourdock has gone down. Dem Donnelly won yes!!
Joe Donnelly (D) wins Indiana senate seat. It is a Democratic pick up. #HugeNews #Election2012— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012
Joe Kennedy III (D) wins in MA. A Kennedy will be in the House of Representatives. #Election2012— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012
Yes. That of course brings tears to my eyes … I am such a Kennedy fan. That is what made me a Democrat at the age of 10.
Romney campaign turns off network feed at HQ…..conceding?— ExtremeLiberal (Jim) (@ExtremeLiberal) November 07, 2012

So Kennedy beat that FL punk west ?

I feel a song coming on…..
Yes, cookemom. That sounds good. We need something to bring Sen. seat in VA. for Tim Kaine.HZ
Fox calling it for Tammy Baldwin of WI
I am doing “Tony the Tiger GRRREEAAATTTT!!!!!!”
Come on Colorado! When Obama wins Colorado, Romney is toast!
Yes…come on Colorado!!!
Obama now up by 21K in Florida— Joseph Weisenthal (@TheStalwart) November 07, 2012
wait what Chips? Trust Nate? How about all your faithful TODers who have been consistent in saying PO will win? What about amk’s prediction of 348. tsk tsk tsk. mumble grumble grumble
C’mon Florida … come through for us and I’ll come visit y’all again. Always did want to go to Disney World (says to self: who cares that i am in my 40′s, it’s never too old to visit Disney …)
I’m with you on that. Come on Florida, Broward county.
I am in my 60′s, was close to that when I visited Disney World the first time. Went to EPCOT (ditched my bitchy sister-in-law and went by myself) and loved it. Met back up with the family a few hours later.
THE CAKE IS BAKED.
Did Chuck Toad actually just say that white voters are getting clobbered by nonwhite voters? Did he actually say that out loud?

Obama Running Well in South-Central Ohio nyti.ms/SzsStq— Nate Silver (@fivethirtyeight) November 07, 2012
hehehe …PBS reporter: rr rally folks/supporters inside the convention centre supposedly don’t know about the Warren victory yet … and reporter reports that the crowd seems a little subdued. RR campaign is not allowing the reporter inside at all times … “weird ruling” as per Gwen Ifil’s reporting partner. If it bothers anyone that I am mentioning these please let me know … and I’ll stop.
Chilllllllllllll out Square…..
When you call out one woman here you call out all women here….you cannot do that….
just as you told HF not to read what she does not like…you can do likewise….and it is never …never …..never acceptable to call a woman out her name….
Truth be told, I thought your comment to me was quite off putting as well because I don’t know you. But, I let it slide and kept moving FORWARD!! Just so you know…
Did I miss something? WTH is jovie????? We need jovie to celebrate FL!!
Yeah, I am missing jovie too. Is he still out at GOTV ?
um, Jovie is a she. Another great she-warrior!
The polls are running late, but I thought she would’ve check in by now – at least for a quick minute.
Shut up David, Uh oh, am I getting abusive? Is that a sign of something? Or do I just need to disturb kitty to get a refill? Okay then, if I must, I must. I will say, champagne is kinda sour… Does that mean something?
ABC News projects Minnesota going to President Obama #Election2012— Mediaite (@mediaite) November 07, 2012
Well done , Minnesota!
EXCELLENT, WTG Minnesota!
All that’s left is to get rid of that horrid Bachmann
I so wish they would. My disappointment of the night is Can’t or keeping his seat. urrggghhh what is in those people’s water?
Anyhow we keep marching on to victory.
Thanks to everyone for the running commentaries. I’m not watching any of the talking heads so it’s really appreciated.
I really should have taken the day off tomorrow. This wine will make it hard to get up at the crack of dawn. LOL BUT WHO THE HELL CARES WHEN THERE’S VICTORY IN THE MAKING!!!!????
Not now please.
Great idea. Let’s just enjoy this night together. No family feuds on PBO’s night. We all worked too hard.
Lets stay together.
okay, squarepeg. It’s okay. everyone is a bit on edge so let’s calm down and everybody just stay in their own corners okay? No out and out brawls okay? What if PBO was tuning in right about now? This isn’t a good image. Let’s just focus on the reason we’re here and that’s PBO’s re-election.
MINNESTOTA goes Obama too, ABC News projects. #POLLS— Jeff Gauvin (@JeffersonObama) November 07, 2012
The mustache is safe!!!!
Save the mustache at all costs!
PBO campaign confident about Florida
If Florida is ours, we win.
I do love being here with y’all…But this all reminds me why I cannot abide television… I grew tired of people telling me what I am supposed to be thinking a LONG LONG time ago!
Pamela, TV is just junk. They are just making stuff up.
We are very close to winning and to seeing our POTUS speak to us once again.
That is what I’m waiting for, when I see him come out, I will turn on the sound. Meanwhile, I fear I am enjoying the Veuve a bit too much, can someone help me out here (not you Chips!)
Having said that, Chips, can you post the pic of my elegant champagne flute for my friends to see? Hee..
All those Pundits suddenly changing sides – I think this election shows people can do their own thinking
yup! my tv is on Tosh.0 and this is where I’m getting all my info. I feel good, no no-count know-nothings to bug me while I wait on PBO’s re-election victory
Chips, get a handle and delete the idiotic posts above please.
The worst news of the night came when CNN said that the Republicant’s will maintain control of the House and Boehner will still be speaker. I was so hoping for Nancy Pelosi.
It was expected as there were too few seats up for contest in the first place. But media just likes to create these false narratives. Creates the horse race they so crave. But we are hunting for them in the mid terms!
MO-Sen 12% in McCaskill 53 Akin 41— Peter Flom (@peterflom) November 07, 2012
I hope she crushes him under her spiked heals. On behalf of women everywhere! Sweet revenge…
I don’t think Duckworth has been officially called, but she has widened heer lead to 56-44. I am feeling pretty much the way I did this morning, relaxed and ready to let out wih a big whoop when FL or OH gets called for PBO. Or VA, or CO, or NC. Anyone of those pretty much seals the deal
Congrats japa. You did it.
OBAMA 251 to 191 with 7 states not yet called … 6 of which are leaning towards Obama…. #SEEYOUMITT— Jeff Gauvin (@JeffersonObama) November 07, 2012
Wonder what Chuck Todd will say about this….he with all of his charts…and predictions and stuff…just saying..
Prettyfoot, I reckon he’ll take leave for 8 years if this carries on!
He’ll find a way to spin. But who cares. We can all collectively laugh at him on twitter, at the same time. Just flood his timeline.
That’s what I’m talking about. The groundswell they didn’t see coming. Not because it wasn’t in front of their eyes but that they refused to see!
Florida is 3.7 mill to 3.7 mill votes, Obama v Romney. 1,000,000 votes still remain from left-leaning counties like Miami-Dade. YES WE CAN!— DC Debbie (@DCdebbie) November 07, 2012
Romney needs FL, VA, & OH. If he loses just 1, he’s done…TOAST #POLLS #ELECTION2012— Jeff Gauvin (@JeffersonObama) November 07, 2012
Iowa/Nevada—-too early to call but Obama in lead in both.
You guys are great! Keep it coming. I have not turned on the t.v. , yet. Do not intend to….I love you guys. Stay focus and let the LOVE flow.
PBO needs our positive energy. Love you, Chips. I have eaten a large bag of cheesy puffs now on my second…..I can’t stop. The adrenalin is tto much…….Okay. Let me get out of the way and let you pros do what you do best. 1-2-3.GO!
NC is too close to call… bad, bad sign for Romney !— Govind Nair (@RedBlueQuest) November 07, 2012
NH has been called for POB. Also Joe Kennedy won the seat of Rep. Barney Frank. Great news.HZ
President Obama has gotten reasonably strong results so far in south-central Ohio, often beating 2008 margins— kathleen (@katsus7) November 07, 2012
You know now that the networks are dragging this out as long as they can ….
Yes, I believe that’s exactly what is going on. They know who has won in most of those states but need to keep folks watching through 11PM
1,000,000 votes in Florida not counted. They are in Broward and Miami Dade. Both major Democratic strongholds. Hang in there.— Joy Warren (@joysmind) November 07, 2012

New post everyone:
I fully expect PBO to end up the winner in FL, although it may well be close enough (0.5%) to force a recall.
Tammy Baldwin (D) of Wisconsin will be the first openly gay senator. #Progress #Election2012— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012
funny how they can immediately project mt & ut as Romney… but unable to call Iowa, Ohio, VA, for POTUS because once they do its all over for Romney.
and PS the senate races aren’t more interesting than the Presidential race Rachel.. although they’re exciting too.
claire mcCaskill alright
Yes, Claire Mccaskill WINS
pbs calling for McCaskill yaaay
McCaskill win is a legitimate win!
Claire McCaskill keeps her Senate seat.
Check the date on this tweet guys! I remember it too.
If I were the Democrats, I'd spend lots of money to win the IN senate seat. They can take it! (wink, wink. nudge, nudge.)— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) May 09, 2012
What an ass!
I am behind the thread and want to thank you Chips for deleting the negativity before I get to it. Tonight we are all so on edge we don’t need added negatives to make us feel sick. Thanks!
I think they just called Tim Kaine for Virginia. Sadly, I think I’m getting a total jerk for my Rep. instead of the wonderful Gary Peters, who was gerrymandered out of my district. His new district is the most bizarre looking thing you every saw. Since my district was leaning Repub before the change, and they changed it to make it more Repub, I doubt I’ll ever get rid of him.
90% of vote counted in NC and PBO is at 50%!
Bob Schieffer says Republicans are thinking they might need to find some new way to attract Latino voters! What could it be?? David Axelrod on now
Hi everyone, this thread is all over the place because I tried to delete most of the aggro, but probably missed a lot of it – going back to watching the President being re-elected. If you can’t get along, ignore each other – on this, of all nights.
CBS just called OHIO for PBO! and the ELECTION
CBS calls OHIO for PBO and the ELECTION!!!!!!
I don’t know if this is getting posted, but CBS just called OHIO for PBO and the ELECTION!!!!!! Now we’ve got to get the popular vote!
