  •  I said last night (8+ / 0-)

    I hoped it wouldn't come down to Florida because I thought they'd screw it up.

    So glad it didn't...and they did kind of mess it up.

      about Ohio, too, with all the dirty tricks there. I was so happy to see Virginia come in and then Ohio did shortly after that.

      It's so funny, we came home late last night because my daughter was working on her school play and it's hell week--show opens Friday. She said she'd been backstage refreshing election news all night. We got home and she went upstairs to put on something comfy, I went downstairs to turn on the TV. That's when they called Ohio for Obama. I had planned a long evening on the couch with the kid and a pot of tea, perhaps a bag of cookies. I went upstairs with this real serious look on my face, went to her room.... "What is it?!" she asked. I only let her worry a second. We watched for a while anyway, though she went to bed before the speeches started. So sweet!
