    i cannot believe the day is almost upon us!

    I know I 'm so excited. Its like the country is getting a furlow from prison, now all we need to know is if we're going to be free or if we're being sent to half way house with the crazies.

    I'm going to be cheering like its New Years Eve. Obama has to win!!!!!!!

    My 17 year old daughter will be doing GOTV for a local state senate candidate here in Massachusetts and then switching over to phone-banking for Obama on the west coast in the early evening. I am so proud of her.

    Save me a seat! My kids have that day off, so I'll probably help out in the election lines. Obama supporters in my area are giving out water and food to people waiting in those long lines. After that, I'll watch movies with the fam until the results start to come in.

    I'll vote around 7:30, go to work and try not to get sucked into the play-by-play. I'm usually glued to the tv for returns, but I don't think I can with this one. I'm just going to come home, avoid returns, go to sleep and wake up to the result.

    I think it's because of election night 2000. I watched all night, up and down, up and down finally going to bed smug in the knowledge Al Gore would be our president. I woke up to Bushy McChimpface.

    I'd rather just get up to the final answer and save myself the gut churning part.

    I will be at home. Hubby and 5 year old son better not even bother me or I will have a melt down.

    Obama better win or I am moving to Canada.
    Remember the results won't be shown until after California closes the polls at 7:00 p.m. Pacific time. Sorry. Long night for you guys. Of course by then we will know.

    I too, will consider a move to Canada if McCain/Palin win. My dad is a Canadian citizen, wonder if that will help my case??
    Yes it will make it very easy. For instance I am Canadian so I just "gifted" my children with citizenship. All they need is a partent who is Canadian, a few dollars, and fill out a form then you can become a citizen. Since you can have dual citizenship you can be American and Canadian. I would get your citizenship just in case. You never know when you might need it.

    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Seems like once we know all the battleground states, the conclusion will be a formality. So by the time they give us the results of the mountain states, we will know, right?

    I fear a total toss up. I don't think I can stand it.

    You should be proud of her!! And she cannot even vote! But obviously, she's on the right track! Hooray for young people that have a clue!

    I'm with Laurent--that 2000 election just ruined it for everyone. I mean, that was crazy. It's almost not worth it to stay up into the wee hours, though I guess it will depend on the situation. Who knows. Maybe....

    I am hoping that it won't COME TO THAT.....just have to wait and see.

    And who am I kidding? I'll be klobbered by 10...

    Just staying up, with the proper alcoholic reinforcements to make the waiting more bearable and calm my nerves which will surely be frazzled. Thankfully I'm already on the west coast so I won't have as long to wait as you east coasters.

    I swear to God I will be wearing black mourning clothes for the longest time if Obama loses.

    We will be getting Chinese takeout,I'm too nervous to cook(it's a good excuse what can I say.)But I will be praying heavily the night before and election day that Obama wins in a landslide. It would be the sweetest revenge on McCain and his lying mean sleazy campaign team and they deserve a big defeat. So all you Obama fans pray for a landslide,maybe we will get our wish. OBAMA-BIDEN to WIN LANDSLIDE 2008.

    I'm in Canada, so I will be watching it all on tv and biting my nails until I see that Obama is proclaimed the winner.
