    At a grad student get together here in DC, we had one TV on MSNBC and the other Fox. Like CNN, they called the election for Obama at the stroke of 11.

    Well I guess this was a tremendous flop. And only two comments to boot. Boy you are sure a transitional leader.
    You must feel like the guy who realizes he has been walking around all day with his fly undone.
    By the way, your Goddy self-promotion “Stephan Taylor” graphics on this site makes Garth Turner seem understated.
    But of course, you won’t print this because you don’t have half the balls of those you criticise. But that’s ok, because it at least felt good to enjoy witnessing your embarrassing failure tonight.
    CNN you are not.
    Seriously Stephan, this is embarassing – and funny!!

    Huge historic win for Obama. I look forward to great relations between President Obama and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Last night was a great day for America and the world.
