@Setanta,
So McCain was conceding by 10:30 pm my time?
Thats surprising.

I honestly figured it would be an all night affair, with the returns coming in very slowly.
I didnt hear who won till 4 this morning my time, when I turned the radio on in my car.


Congratulations to Obama and the dems.

@Setanta,
agreed, re the conservative collective, but MM is not even on the nutjob radar...

Sometimes i think MM is just plain goofy, but i certainly agree he is very far indeed from the lunatic fringe--who have exposed themselves to the glare of broad daylight today.

**********************************************************

MM, i just went back to check--i reported that McCain was giving his concession speech at 11:21 p.m. EST, which would have been 10:21 in the CST. Obama began his victory speech in Chicago at 11:00 p.m. local (CST)--Hell, he and his wife weren't even obliged to let the girls stay up late.

HEY, I resemble that remark...LOL

I didnt see or hear the speech, so I am asking about what I heard reported.
Did Obama make his speech with the Biden family on stage with him and not his own family?
If thats true, I wonder why he did that.

@mysteryman,
JPB was there, I am guessing when she gets her sleep patterns corrected, she will give a bird's eye view...

@mysteryman,
What i recall is that he came out with his wife and daughters, made a few remarks for the delirious crowd, and then Michelle lead the girls off-stage, and Obama settled down to the real business of his victory speech. I don't recall seeing Biden until after he had given the speech.

No, he did not. The Bidens came out afterwards for the group photo op.

Here's a link to the speech on CSPAN if you care to view it. Biden comes out alone when the speech is over at 17:00 into it and then the two families join them.

While I'm very happy for Obama, I am sad to read about all the "marriage definition" items that got passed on Tuesday. It's a sad consolation prize to have to give the social conservatives.

Having said that, I think our conservative A2K friends are showing some good grace right now, and I feel inclined to put aside the great desire to be real petty and rub in their lose as opposed to just being satisfied with my own victory.

One exception though...

Hey H2OMAN, I hope this hurts.

That's good enough for me.

I can not think of a better quote to extend my hand in reconciliation than that with which I ended my first post.


I didn't realize that is what you were doing when you ended that post with the quote.

We're good.
