Methinks that with this stuff about calling winners with only 3% or what not is mainly the MSM competing with each other for viewers. Mixing crap in with typical bending of truth. Also gets people irritated, myself included.

I disagree,
I think this current government has drive this economy in the wrong direction on purpose, for personal and corporate interests.

Now, if the next president redirected the countries focus to industry, domestic issues, production etc, then the public would embrace that government.

if you’ve been kicked in the face for so long, and someone finally comes along helps you and and points you in the right direction... your going to appreciate and acknowledge that person.

On Fox the electoral votes at 10pm EST are:
Obama 207
McCain 129

On CNN the electoral votes at 10pm EST are:
Obama 207
McCain 89

Maybe Americans are starting to focus on US issues rather than Israeli issues...
...could happen?

Some of them probably were called too early, but it doesn't matter. Of Ohio, Florida, Virginia and Pennsylvania, McCain needed three of the four. It looks very much like he's going to go 0-4. Its over, he's done.

For everyone that is wondering how a state is declared without the votes been counted, I just saw it tonight in Fox News, they use a formula that takes into account many factors that right now I can not remember, but I they explain it tonight.

If McCain doesn't win California, he cannot win. But California?

They should have campaigned on the GOP accomplishments in the Whitehouse.

I agree, campaigning should only last a day or two!

Obama - 207
Mccain - 135

Original Post:
You know, you're right; but remember that 3 out of 4 of the top members of congress who grew their wealth this year are Democrats. That's not saying anything other than neither party is innocent here.

Edit to correct (too much wine):


In the House of Representatives, Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., ranks No. 1, with $397 million, followed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., with $343 million. Rep Robin Hayes, R-N.C., ranks third, with $173.4 million. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ranks sixth, with $62 million.

In the Senate, the two Democrats from Massachusetts claimed two of the top three spots.

Sen. John Kerry led the pack, with $336 million, while Sen. Edward M. Kennedy ranked third, with $104 million. Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., ranked second, with $241.5 million. Overall, senators had a median net worth estimated at $1.7 million.

If anything, this should be a wakeup call for the independent movement. I am convinced that the two-party system is dead.

It is possible that you are right. My point is only that they are calling many of these states without any precincts reporting and that doesn't make a darn bit of sense. Polls can and frequently are wrong. In this case, they may be perfectly right I'm not denying that. But it simply doesn't make sense to call a state for either candidate without any of the precincts reporting.

I'm sorry, that contributed to the discussion how? I mean really. Yes by the end of the night Obama may, and probably will, win. But all of the results aren't in yet and your post was simply bad form.

So is this thread closing down now? Nothing more to see here folks?
At least I didn't have to stay up until midnight like in 2004.

FOX News just showcased the campaign manager stating they "concede that there is no viable road that can put McCain at 270."

No reporting of such an event - that would be plastered all over every station & webpages

The Fox News talking .s are already conceding that Obama won, and not in a graceful manner I should say.

Cnn. Com:


Obama builds momentum
Barack Obama is on target to win Ohio, Iowa and New Mexico, CNN projects. Those three states went for President Bush in 2004. Two senior aides to John McCain see "no path to victory," given the results so far.
