Wow! I didn't expect them to call it so early in the night. The last election took several days to figure out, didn't it? And the one before that took a few months. The only question now is, how much of a landslide was it? It doesn't seem too early to say, "A rather large landslide, actually." It was so slow all day long, and then it happened all at once.
Did anyone in Kenya or Indonesia celebrate the night of our last presidential election? Did anyone in Kenya four years ago even know there was an election going on in America? The global significance of our election is almost scary.
Even in super-red states like Kansas and Nebraska, the margin is only around 55/45 for McCain right now. I think that's impressive by itself.
It's now just New England and the Pacific Coast voting democratic. There's Midwestern, Western (Yey for my home Colorado!) and even a few Southern states (Virginia, Florida and probably North Carolina) voting for Obama. I'm really glad that he's being elected across the board and not just by a few population dense regions.
I'm not really ecstatic right now. Happy, relieved, yes -- it hasn't fully set in. It looked like Obama was going to win from the beginning, so I guess I'm not really surprised. I'm just so glad that it finally happened.
Also, Palin has to go back to Alaska now. Praise God.
