    Holding a party or are you going to an Election Night get together?


    I love to be with friends and neighbors on Election Night....especially since we're all Progressives.

    Anyone attending a party that will be mixed with both Democrats and Republicans?

    I was watching solo in a CLU (containerized living unit) in Kabul, Afghanistan for the last Presidential election. This year I'm either watching with friends here in DC or heading to Ohio to volunteer as a poll monitor.

    It's probably best that I watch the returns by myself. The cursing and yelling could be a bit much for a large group.

    Does going to the gym count as an election party?

    Being in DC, its hard not to find people who are insanely involved and invested in politics. Everybody's kinda got some skin in the game, so to speak. Tuesday, I'll be watching with Dems from New Hampshire and California, Republicans from Alabama, and Independents (voting Obama) from Colorado.

    I'd say we've got a good spread there.

    There will be nothing to celebrate on election night - regardless of who wins. Big money runs this country. The average joe citizen nearly always loses. That's why I also get a chuckle out of the silly partisan arguments that take place here fairly regularly.

    Last election 2008 I was at the Arizona Biltmore and literally stood about 10 yards in front of John McCain as he conceded the election to Obama. Then I went home and watched the Obama acceptance speech on TV. It was right about then that I realized that what had happened was the right thing. It was hard not to with all the emotions people were wearing on their sleeve that night.

    CUT TO: 2012 --- I think I will watch with a group of friends. Everyone is so nervous about the outcome this year. There is no joy this time around. The campaigns have been so mean and nasty. "Hope & Change" was not what it was cracked up to be. The idea that some $2 billion was spent on the campaigns is a disgrace. I know very few people voting for Obama here, so it seems like Romney will do well, maybe even win. My gut tells me that it's either going to be a Romney landslide, or Obama will win by a squeaker. Whatever happens, I'll accept it and move on. I hope everyone else does the same

    No matter what happens, just tell them that Romney won. Old people have so little to live for....give them one last joyful moment.

    Ohhh, to be the dip next to the Doritos bowl at THAT party. Chris, I'm assuming you're a wonderful host and you'll be sure to have lots of Kleenex boxes around. icon_wink.gif Wait, did you say 7:30? You may as well just hand them a Kleenex as they arrive. The election will probably have been called by then.

    Gonna watch it with a couple friends. I'm hoping and praying for a 269-269 tie. America would go crazy icon_smile.gif but that is very improbable so I will be hoping that Obama pulls it out.
