Clear lack of class, I would even go to say intellect, from the McCain-Palin supporters during McCain's speech. Really sad actually.

Well, I think there were a few early on who were vocal in their disappointment (to be expected), but under the guidance of McCain the jeers turned into cheers.

Bitterness is a bitch.

But who cares about the supporters. McCain was classy, and at the end of the day, that's what counts.

re: Election Day Thread 2008

Great night. Very impressive from President Elect Obama (wow). And very gracious from John McCain--nice to see the old John again. I think that was a better representation of the man then his campaign.

Very historic. Loved the part in Obama's speech about the 106 year old voter from Georgia. Amazing.

re: Election Day Thread 2008

The McCain supporters were a big reason I didn't switch my vote last minute. It seemed like too many of his rural supporters had no reasoning whatsoever to vote for him but were more adamant than anyone that I shouldn't vote for obama. Racial based ignorance was seeming to run rampant in culpeper. Bad day for the trailer parks across the nation.

Re: Election Day Thread 2008

One of the big stories of this election was the voter turnout, very good to see people getting out there and voting

It's unfortunate we didn't get to see more of that during the campaign.

I think we did early, but then it just faded away.

Re: Election Day Thread 2008

I was in and out within 5 minutes. Very efficient polling station here in Washington county MD. The only thing they needed here was flag men for parking. There was a steady flow of cars coming and going. I think if I had waited much longer I would have been stuck in traffic just leading up to the polling place. Once you got parked it was pretty seamless. Getting out of the parking lot was no fun though.

Both of these quotes...ridiculous!

You guys want to talk about biased and racial but then call out rural supporters of a particular candidate as trailer trash? Take a look in the mirror and rethink those statements.

Yeah I was really tired Tuesday morning and I was going to blow it off. Then I thought of the All State commercial where the lady in the wheel chair went through all this stuff so that she could get to the voting both. So I was like I am a serious lazy piece of crap if I don't go.

I as so GLAD I did it and when I saw Obama win I was like I had a part in this great American moment!

The easy part is over for Obama, now it is time for him and all of us to put our heads down and shovel ourselves out of this shit. Today is the start of a great new start! Amen!!!!!!

Re: Election Day Thread 2008

I don't know about you guys but I'm beat today. I just had to stay up to see Obama speak and I'm really glad I did. The best thing about an election like that is for a few moments you can't help but feel incredibly optimistic about the future.

And of course the impact of electing an African American is so significant, I really feel that one day we'll look back on this as being a true turning point in regard to race relations in this country. For years we've heard this talk of how things have improved in that regard, well last night was a clear statement of just how far we have come. It wasn't that long ago when we had such a significant racial divide in this country. Obviously in certain areas of the country the problem still exists and probably will for a long time, but this represents a significant step forward no doubt. It's a good day to be an American.
