The Empire State Building, which a friend has a dead on view of from his apartment, is being lit blue or red depending on who’s winning.  He had decided not to watch TV coverage, but it looks as if he can’t get away from it.  He’s a citizen manque, anyway.  I can’t watch because the speculation and the yak drives me crazy,  and I can’t see the Empire State Building, either.  Wake me when it’s over.

Looking good so far. Tighter than I had hoped, but Obama has a slight lead in the states he needs to carry. I’m assuming he’ll take California. He has a good lead in Ohio so far, and a very narrow lead in Florida. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

My trusty lady reports Colorado just went to Obama.

Even the popular vote is evening up, that’s nice - I sure hope Obama takes that count also.

I really hope this win really makes a difference. We’ll see.

Any bets on how long it will take Romney to decide to concede?

It took a long time for Romney to give his concession speech, but his wishy washy, etch a sketch style served him well, as usual and he did ok with his concession speech.  Obama’s acceptance speech rocked.  I would add, thank you, women, hispanics, gays, hurricane Sandy, blacks, progressive white men, etc., who made this possible.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.

When I finally went to bed last night he still hadn’t. I assumed he was waiting for the final polls to close, somewhere around 1am ET.

Still, a great night.

I wished Romney had won Florida. It would have been more fun to watch.

I expect that the religious conservatives are really upset to see that Hurricane Sandy contributed to Obama’s victory.  If god is on the side of the liberals, they might become P.O.ed enough at him/her/it to become atheists.  LOL

While the slight improvement in the Senate might help a bit, the Republican majority in the House means four more years of government stalemate—very little improvement in taxes or tax structure, financial regulations, health care, or education.  At least we may prevent the Supreme Court from going more conservative, however, I doubt that any of the more conservative justices will retire, and they’re all too damned healthy.

There really should be term limits for the Supreme Court.  Even if they’re like 10 years.
