    I've never celebrated the feeling of relief before. I'll be content to have peace of mind again. If he wins, then maybe I'll drink.

    Plan a party. You'll be glad you did. Maybe support a small business and buy a custom cake.

    I think the main to remember is that this is a question of partisanship, not of what is best for America.

    It is better to have a right wing candidate in power and live in a poor, backwards nation than to have a Democratic candidate in power and live in a wealthier and forward-thinking nation.

    The alternative would be to choose the candidate not by party, but by quality.

    The one and only bakery we had in town was a casualty of the bad economy. The bars are still open, though. Besides, parties take time to plan and we won't know till late who won. If Obama wins, I really won't be in a party mood.

    What the hell are you talking about? Obama's economy is terrible. If you're going to go off topic then at least make sense.

    Gatsby -

    So it is not correct than during the last twelve months, unemploynent has dropped and job creation risen steadily?

    Is it not true that US unemployment is now lower than in 8 of your top 10 trading partner nations?

    It just seems strange to me that you celebrate not economic success or prosperity, but celebrate partisanship.

    It is true that the unemployment rate in the US has now declined to 8,1%, a bit higherthan when President Obama took office. During the first year of Obama's presidency unemployment rose sharply to a high of 10%. It more or less stabilized at this very high level for about a year and has been declining for the last year.

    Celebrating somebody's loss seems pretty dumb to me.
