    I am watching the local FOX news on the Treasure Coast of Florida and Obama Mania is alive and well in the Sunshine State! He had a rally here today...

    NBC Nightly News put some telling numbers up today... 52% of Obama Supporters say they are "excited" about their candidate this election compared to 37% of McCain supporters who say that they're "satisfied" with their candidate.

    The way it was presented led me to believe the number of McCain supporters who are excited was not worth mentioning.

    Are you excited? I am.

    This is the first election in my grey-haired life that I have used the term 'excited'... Usually elections are described as the 'lesser of two evils'.

    Is it too early to pick 'landslide' as my election night drinking word? I'm ready to party!!

    I am EXTREMELY excited. And yes, it is too early. I don't think Obama will win Missouri, Florida, Ohio or North Carolina. But he'll win new mexico, iowa, Colorado, New Hampshire and Virginia and that'll be just enough to get him elected.

    You want "landslide"? I thought you might have picked "Obama" or "McCain" . Me personally? I might go for "exit polls"..;O)

    I am excited too, for the first time in my not-quite-but-almost grey haired life. First time the guy I wanted in the primaries might end up in the white house.

    But yes, it is too early until the machines don't give it to McCain.

    I am so excited that I want to have sex with Obama and I'm a heterosexual.

    I don't know anyone except conservatives that want to have sex with him or think he is the messiah.

    Democrats are just happy to have a competent and charismatic candidate.
