Only in DC…

Can the election be called for Obama before a single precinct reports:

00 p.m.
Washington Post, 9:00 p.m.

Really, the only question here is whether or not McCain will crack 10%. (This may seem extreme, but in 2004, Bush didn’t.)

Yep, we are the bluest of the blue…

    Well…it looks like you are about to have a very happy town. I guess it’s your turn.

    That sounded grumpier than I meant it to be when I reread it. Oops.

    Oooh Ooooh…DC has dating potential again 🙂

    If the House & Senate have been blue, and the dating potential has been what it is, is one more blue person truly going to up the ante? Maybe L.A……

    Now, does this potential exist only once January arrives, or can folks get started EARLIER?

    DC remains the bluest of the blue – McCain only got 7%. Hahaha.

    @ Susan – I think it’s fine, and not especially grumpy to look at it as our turn. That’s the good thing about our system, right? That we all get a chance to have our say and switch the leadership from one side to the other.

    @ Eileen/CL – Yep, a Dem in the White House should help, believe it or not. Barack Obama may be one guy, but he’s a guy with an entire administration, which is a pretty massive number of people — at least a few of whom have a chance of being a guy willing to put up with me.

    @ Hillary/Susan – I honestly thought he would have done better than Bush, so 7% is a bit of a surprise.

    My admittedly disgruntled husband did say that politics was just a huge pendulem and it was bound to swing the other way. (that was his backwards congrats to the Dems)

    I have to agree with him though.

    And yes Sarah – dating potential finally!!! It’s about damn time. There have been lots of articles today about the change in culture that will be coming to DC.
