Tuesday

nail biting

6:00 pm in Oregon 8% of precincts in the U.S. reporting
Obama 10,432,403
Mccain 10,418,113

7:00 PM/19:00 27% of precincts reporting
Obama 21,914,412 votes
Mccain 21,300,560 votes

7:30 40% of precincts reporting
Obama 29,915,719
Mccain 28,602,280

I have no doubt that Obama will win. What does worry me though is that 4 states have state constitutional amendments up for vote that say homosexuals should not have the same rights as heterosexuals.

8:00 53% of precincts reporting
Obama 37,555,553
Mccain 35,315,366

Obama is unofficially the winner with 297 of the 270 Electoral votes needed to win, Mccain has 139. Please don't ask me what the electoral college thing has to do with an election. i as 99.99999% of americans have no idea.

8:22 Mccain is giving his concession speech. YAHOOO!!

8:32 fireworks and car horns blaring in my neighborhood.

when i regard the American politics over the last couple of years (let´s face it i´m thirty) ... over the last thirty years it´s like the republicans bring war and excessive national debt and then the democrats have to clean up the mess and even if Clinton had his d... sucked by Monica in the oval office at the end of his presidentship --> No War no national debt good foreign relations.

Hey Lars - you're still celebrating ? lol

And Zing... is right ;)

Lars said...

Not Celebrating Judy, I've had a cold and have been spending most of my time in bed.

P.s. you can't say Zing is right out loud, the kid has a big enough ego as it is ;)
