The Big Day

I don't think I get this excited at Christmas. I can't help but click over to CNN every three minutes, even though there is absolutely nothing to report yet.

But even through the excitement, part of me feels a slight sense of dread. I think tomorrow is going to be a rough day, regardless of who wins.

If McCain wins, well, how are we supposed to go on? I have until January 20th to get my passport. If Obama wins, there might be some people who are upset. And the people who would get upset by such a thing are pretty darn passionate, on so many levels.

I just hope it's quick and painless. I want a concession speech by the end of the day tomorrow. None of this dragging it out for days, recounts or threats of lawsuits. Just give up and accept defeat like a big boy, McCain.

Oops.
Did I say that out loud?

I have a spare room... but it's already been promised to about 20 of my American friends who are not big fans of McCain.
It's very exciting! I am glued to CNN. Canada is with you in spirit and hopes for an Obama victory!

Carrie, I'm happy on the floor. Or in a tent in the backyard. Really. I'm not picky.

Send the good juju!!

Looks like you can stay where you are.

McCain made an eloquent concession speech and rioting has not broken out in the Red States so I guess things will be alright.
