Hey Turn PW Blue, now you can add “turn VA blue” to your Moniker!!!!!! Wow, Virginia, since 1964, prior to desegregation, has not voted Democratic. And look at us now, putting our first African American in the executive office, take my keys Poor Richard, I must be drunk!
continue posting results and comments folks!!!!
As the election poll close across the Country, it’s time to wait and watch. Some channels are reporting states based on exit polling but CNN is playing it safe and waiting for the votes to be counted. Basically, at this point South Carolina, Oklahoma, Kentucky & Tennessee are in the McCain column, while Vermont & Illinois are in Obama’s. It’s 8:20pm and thus far only Brentsville District in Prince William has reported with the following results:
Barack Obama and Joe Biden 351 29.97%
John McCain and Sarah Palin 810 69.17%
Additionally, no surprise that Mark Warner will replace the retiring John Warner as a Virginia State Senator.

Obviously there’s a lot of exuberance over Obama, but even after attending his Spring Rally at Nissan, I never caught Obama fever. I give credit to the many faithful, intelligent and kind Obama supporters who have shown a great deal of respect in presenting their candidate’s position.
I believe both candidates deserve our respect and whomever wins deserves our support.
But these are the reasons why I’m voting for McCain:
- I have serious reservations about Obama on the abortion issue. The next President will have the opportunity to appoint Supreme Court Justices who’s influence on cases could have long lasting effects on our nation.
- I feel uneasy that a family with two working adults could meet the definition of ‘rich’, if they earned $200,000/year.
- I’m concerned that with the House, Senate, and President all being from the same party that bipartisanship practices will be abandoned.
This thread will be a hodge podge of election day comments. I have gotten 7 emails asking for it, so here it is. Please let us know which polling sites are crowded, how long the lines are, etc.
Wow, what an amazing event. Packed in tight, the people attending the final Obama rally were excited and positive about tomorrow! I was there with a friend of mine, we arrived around 5:30, and watched, as the crowd grew, and grew and grew……. people as far as the eye could see! It was an amazing event. We met three older gentlemen from Quebec Canada. They had been volunteering for the Obama campaign! Two had also been chiefs of staff for the head honcho of Quebec (I can’t remember what the formal title is of that position). They were very excited, having been intrigued bystanders of many past elections, including JFK. They said that people around the world were hoping that Obama would win, and with his win, restore the great name of The United States of America. They LOVE America, our ideals, for them, represent the best and worst that can encompasses a democratic country. By the end of the night we we were dancing and cheering together. As we said our good byes, we wished each other well and left hopeful that tomorrow will bring about a change this country desperately needs.
