I've spent the year insisting that the Mittbot will never be President will never be re-elected and I've convinced myself that I'm right.

With that line, you can probably get a guest appearance on Morning Joe.

Bah, screwed up the formatting. That should be:

And your predictions will make you suffer the same consequences as all the other, shall we say more media-driven, guessers. That is, none.

@Danny: Exactly but it's fun.

Adrastos, I agree. Even before Hurricane Sandy, I thought Obama would win, and the election would not be all that close, but I was too chicken to say so in public. Sandy changed the trend in Obama's favor, but we may never know by how much.

Sandy reminded people that the President is good in a crisis.

I think we have enough people voting for the President to be re-elected. I'm concerned about voter suppression efforts, provisional balloting in Ohio (second only to Florida in political insanity) and whatever weird shit Gov. Voldemort and his gang of dementors try to pull today. I wish I felt like I could trust our voting system, but it's too susceptible to manipulation.

Nevertheless, I'm going out to cast my vote this afternoon here in the heavily Republican America's Taint (aka the Florida Panhandle). We're slowly making progress, though. There are actually two other people in my neighborhood supporting the President AND the county Democratic Party actually opened an office this year.

I'm preparing for a long night but hoping we'll be in bed before midnight. See y'all in the van.

I got pretty much the same results, except I have Obama with 333 and Romney @ 205 due Obama to winning the Omaha congressional district, (because Nebraska splits the EV).

Well, you did better than how many "professional" news pundits ?!
