Watch Stephen's live election coverage with conservative commentator David Frum and Reuters editor Chrystia Freeland tonight! 11:30pm/10:30c

So we've got a theoretically neutral (I assume) historian, a (presumably) 'real' journalist, also theoretically 'neutral',  and this guy:

David J. Frum (pronounced /?fr?m/; born June 30, 1960) is a Canadian American journalist active in both the United States and Canadian political arenas. A former economic speechwriter for President George W. Bush, he is also the author of the first "insider" book about the Bush presidency. His editorial columns have appeared in a variety of Canadian and American magazines and newspapers, including the National Post and The Week. He is also the founder of (formerly, a political group blog...

..On November 16, 2008, The New York Times reported that David Frum would be leaving National Review where he was a contributing editor and run an online blog. Frum announced to readers of his blog that he would be starting a new political website, He described it as "a group blog, featuring many different voices. Not all of them... conservatives or Republicans." He added that he hoped the site would "create an online community that will be exciting and appealing to younger readers, a generation often repelled by today's mainstream conservatism." The website was launched on January 19, 2009. David Frum's website changed to on October 31, 2009.

Yay. Think I'll see what's up on the Food Channel.


Oh, but I got this friendly personal email earlier:

Polls are open in parts of the country as late as midnight Eastern Time -- and we urgently need more folks to call voters from home once the polls have closed in their area.

We're calling only to those voters in races we believe are coming down to the wire.

That means every call you make from now until midnight Eastern Time is even more crucial, even more focused, and even more likely to have a big impact.

Keep calling now:

So, y'know. Looks like it's Alaska at the moment...

update: actually, we got Katrina Vanden Heuvel instead of whatshername from Reuters.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
