Election Day Blogging

I'm in Washington, D.C. for the CNN election night blogger party coverage which will begin at 5pm ET. You can view it live at CNN Pipeline (14 day free trial required) and you may see us from time to time on CNN's Situation Room. CNN internet reporters Jacki Schechner and Abbi Tatton will be with us. Pipeline has four feeds you can watch simultaneously, the bloggers will be one of the channels most of the night.

Big Tent, TChris and maybe even Last Night in Little Rock will be blogging at TalkLeft as well.

I got in around 5 pm today, hooked up with John Amato from Crooks and Liars, and Christy, TRex and Pach from Firedoglake. We went over to the Tryst, where we'll be tomorrow night. It's a large, very cool, very funky coffee house with high ceilings, great food, tables, couches and a bar.

Don't forget to vote tomorrow, so many races are just so close. Bottom line: We get the Government we elect.

    as usual................... (5.00 / 1) (#5)

    jim's out to lunch. carter wasn't all that bad a president: no wars, no major tax increases, no major deficits. take out the iran situation, which started while he was in the naval academy, and his was actually sort of a bland administration really.

    at least he had the smarts to not start a war over the embassy takeover, a war which we would still be mired in today, most likely.

    my fear is what damage a lame duck bush might do in the next two years. i have my investments in vice and defense; nearly recession, inflation, deflation, tax and politician proof.

    and he is us."


    welcome to D.C. jeralyn. stay off of 95 & 495, if you value your life!

    going to go vote here shortly. for reasons i am not exactly clear about, i am having a massive anxiety attack, as though this election is a pivotal moment in my beloved country's history. maybe i'm just not used to being an actual part of a critical moment in time, and the thought scares the bejeesus out of me.

    in any event, "if tis to be done, tis best twere done quickly.", so off i go, hi ho, hi ho!

    The country survived Carter. (none / 0) (#3)

    Uh cpinva, it's just an election. The country survived Carter, so I don't think a Demo congress, if they actually win it which is not yet known,
    can do too much harm in two years.

    But you're right, they can do enough mischeif to cause a few hundred thousand people to get killed and another attack inside the US.

    And if you have any money in the markets, get out before the tax increases are announced.


    Hit the booth...HARD (none / 0) (#2)

    I'll be stopping after work to hit the booth...I'm glad my district still uses mechanical lever operated voting machines...makes me think my vote might actually be counted correctly!

    I urge all of the TL crew to join in me in voting against every incumbent regardless of party affiliation.  From my viewpoint, the senate, the house, and my state govt. has failed as a whole...time for as many new faces as possible.  If the new crop fails...do the same next time...and do it again and again till our politicians realize they either fly right or get canned.

    I voted (none / 0) (#4)

    Well, I did indeed vote at my polling station in Burliington, VT. No lines at 9 a.m, but things were moving at a clip. Mostly, I voted for independents and neither Sanders nor any incumbent (sorry folks, but I'm with Leiter on this).

    Look, if the Democrats prevail tomorrow, and a handful of them actually decide they stand for something other than not being George W. Bush, then maybe America has a future.  I hope so.  But I ain't optimistic.  And I'd love to be wrong.
