Obama over 270

I'll go ahead and predict that Obama wins in Florida.  In 5 minutes he's going over 270.

North Carolina is trending away, toward McCain. Indiana is still to close.

Congratulations, President-elect Obama.

Re: Obama over 270

Jerome and Obama sittin' in a tree . . .

Okay, you won't endorse him, but it's nice to see you admitting that he's kicking a little ass.

Re: Obama over 270

I tuned into Fox just in time to hear Brit Hume call California for Obama and refer to him as President-elect Obama. Wow :)

Re: Obama over 270

Almost speechless.  Given where we were as a country when I was growing up, how utterly impossible it seemed that this moment would ever happen.....no way of saying it, just taking it in.

A huge weight has been lifted from our country's shoulders.

FL Goes!

CA projected at 26 points in the exits.  Man - I'm tearing up seeing guys like John Lewis tearing up.

Re: Obama over 270

Jerome Armstrong said, "Obama is definitely the weakest nominee that Democrats have put up this decade."

Two words: Screw you.

No wonder your post only has 8 comments. Everyone is at DailyKos or Open Left.

PATHETIC

Please find a new profession.

Re: Obama over 270

Open Left was very anti-Obama during the primary but once Obama had it wrapped up they made it very clear that they were supporting the Democratic ticket. That never really happened here...

Re: Obama over 270

More anti-Obama than MyDD?  Is that possible?

Re: Obama over 270

Absolutely! You blew it Jerome!

All those months of reading your nasty front page pieces about how Obama could not win.. unbelievable..

well i'm too busy enjoying my night to worry to much about you..but you really do need to find a new profession.

Re: Obama over 270

This is how I imaging this post being spoken instead of typed by the author:

--[ big deep breath ]
--[ in a quite, monotone voice reminiscent of Eeyore]
I'll go ahead and predict that Obama wins in Florida.

--[ long pause]
--[ deep breath]
--[ continue quite, monotone voice ]
In 5 minutes he's going over 270.

--[ short pause]
--[ louder and faster with as much "see, I was right" as can be mustered]
North Carolina is trending away, toward McCain. Indiana is still to close.

--[ long pause]
--[ deep breath]
--[ long pause]
Congratulations,

--[ long pause]
--[ deep breath]
--[ long pause]
--[ in a whisper]
President-elect Obama.
