    Hello guys and gals (see we’re getting Americanised here y’all!) as you all know today is the big day, the moment in history, the chance for our American brothers and sisters to consign Bush and his ilk to history.

    To mark this historic moment the excellent Liberal Conspiracy will be live blogging it. A team of highly coffee fuelled experts will be on hand to offer up all kinds of er expert stuff.

    Things will be getting going from 11pm onwards, I intend to be there cup of lemsip in hand to offer my historic 2 cents (read: make stupid jokes) and I invite all PP readers and writers to join us.

    It’s gonna be historic y’all! :D

      I have been following this election *very closely* since the beginning of this year, absorbing every detail from blogs and other media, looking at every poll - nationally and state. All will come at a close tonight. Hopefully, we will be seeing a lot more of Obama in the years to come.

      The mood here in suburbs of Chicago is absolutely electric! But this place is swarming with cops right now, just in case Obama loses =/.

      Just voted in Arlington, VA.

      I would have the Obama/Biden campaign volunteers impressed me. They were everywhere besieging the polling location and a tiny tent for McSame/Fallin : ).

      Goes without saying that McSame’s bunch were totally despondent while thinking “When will this be over” lol.

      “just in case Obama loses =/”

      Yea, and maybe we will be visited by aliens too…

      “just in case Obama loses =/”

      Are you sure about that?

      The ‘Good ole Boys’ and their crew are just too through that a Black man has out-planned, out-witted, out-organized, out-financed one of their own. In fact,Obama is making McCain look like a poor uneducated school boy. And Sarah, oh Sarah, Sarah, Sarah!!!! What can you say. Hopefully she is home looking across to see is she can see Russia because regardless of whether she prays that she will wake up as Vice President, how does that diddy go - IN YOUR DREAMS!!! Go git em OBAMA!!!! CONGRATS!

      We’ve started a little early! It’s up and running now, Vikrant please do join us the US based view would be greatly appreciated.

      Americanisation? I’ve got a better idea. Yeah, I do. Why don’t we just let them have their bases in our country, like in Fariford? That’s better than being Americanised.

      The temptation to stay up to see what’s going to happen is bloody strong - especially if Obama wins, because that’ll have my American ex-in laws (in Kentucky) crying their right-wing, bigoted, creationist eyes out.. :-) )

      The responsibilities of parenthood, however, weigh a little too heavily. :-)

      Ah, well.

      Hope y’all have a great night, now!

      The atmosphere was electric, even as a cynical Brit in red Texas the hope was contagious, his speech was inspirational. Okay so I am in Dallas which went 57% Democrat I understand?
