  •  I simply can't believe the defeatism. (none)
    If this heads for a loss, of course it will hurt. But I say that the turnout numbers absolutely indicate that the youth vote helped us, whatever the outcome. Win or lose, I want to thank all of you youngsters who worked so damned hard, and who showed up at the polls in numbers so unprecedented that you actually kept up your participation percentage during an election when we had record turnout. That's what we should be talking about. YOU YOUNGSTERS ROCK!! And though I think that it's still too early to concede, I think that we should be appreciating everyone's effort, because everyone here is ON THE SAME SIDE, rather than blaming those friends of ours here who have helped put some steel in the Dem spine. Forget hanging our heads; anyone can do that. NO!!! I say:

    Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'

    We are not now that strength which in the old days

    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;

    One equal-temper of heroic hearts,

    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
