Unbelievable.

This is amazing.

Thank you to everyone that made it happen, big efforts and small.

@nimh,
Not that it matters now, but ...

Obama leads in Indiana and North Carolina AND in Omaha, NE, so he might pick up one of Nebraska's electoral votes before the evening is over.

@sozobe,
Gergen just said (after me!) that this looks like the largest margin since Lyndon Johnson.

Abolish the death penalty in New Jersey -- check
Get the Republicans out of the White House -- check

My civilizing effect since arriving in America has been sweeping as planned.

Next up: total domination of America by ze Germans.

@joefromchicago,
Don't forget Montana. (Ok, I know, only 9% reporting, but still.)

@FreeDuck,
No, I'm not too generous. I tend to flume, but I routinely check into what you are saying.

Signed, your fan



Past that, I'm out of my mind ecstatic, breathing in and out - re the election


- but get the mess we're in.

@ossobuco,
Definitely get the mess we're in.

A really nice older lady at the polls this morning was saying something about hoping people don't expect solutions overnight and then get disappointed. I don't expect overnight solutions...

And hey, osso, thanks for helping to flip New Mexico!

@ossobuco,
Looks like I made a boo-boo in an earlier post. Obama didn't get Arizona.

Oh well. It doesn't matter now. Hee!

Echo that!

Forget Reagan - this is Morning in America.

As a foreigner, I deeply appreciate that you have made the best choice for President in over 40 years. Because I really believe that Barack Obama is that.

(OK, so there wasnt all that much competition in the decades since Nixon. But still - over 40 years!)

And the images of people, all day, so moved, at electing the first African-American president - just 50 years ago... well.

@joefromchicago,
Yeah, CNN is on commercial break and before that said they'd have Obama when they came back...

I've gone through about 3 boxes of kleenex already...

Does anyone know the total voter turnout already?
It must have been phenomenal.

There is no such thing. Check the label. Wink
McCain showed perfect class and has my deep respect.
