    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Legalistically this isn't the case, but realistically speaking we know it is this way giving Obama a theoretical 60+ point lead during that entire period where it was "neck and neck". In reality, Obama had a secure 74 points coming but due to the time zone differences they were counted in an order that only made it seem like it was close.

    Astonishingly, Obama may be on track to win Florida and Virginia, and the Montana and North Dakota senate races are in play.

    Checks and Balances are different from the dysfunction we've seen. I ended up voting differently for the house that I probably would have if I believed the Republicans were willing to compromise. I think if the Republicans filibuster or block legislation to the point that we go over the fiscal cliff, there will be more people moving over to my mindset.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    What do you say when all you've been saying is "we cannot lose!" and then you do?

    I'm watching the live feed now... the awkwardness is already palpable.

    edit: Obama won Virginia to boot... ouch.
