My intent is to stay up until we have a President elect. If this old body holds out, and if, God forbid, we dont have a Florida 2000 rerun, Ill be updating maps and data throughout the evening. Well also get to see how accurate my projections were. This will be pushing my limits, but I look forward to it. Also, check out our new Cat Chat below.

Good for you Tom. I hope you are wrong with Florida being red. Afraid you might be correct, but I hope you are not.

Thanks Tom. Will be sitting on pins and needles this evening. However after the "call" for President Obama I intend to go to bed with soothing classical music playing. That is right after I listen to Aaron Copeland's 'Fanfare for the Common Man" in celebration. Read and noted.

I voted for Pres. Obama and VP Biden today, took my 83 year old Mom to the polls and she voted for them, too. Neither of us had to wait very long. Am now waiting for Romney's concession speech which he is declining to give.

Thanks everyone. The new chat plugin overloaded the server, damaged the database and crashed the site. I was up all night with tech support, even after I thought it was fixed. Woooo Hoooo Obama!
