    I feel you. Not all of mine did, and I am mostly happy but sad as well. I just wanna say, I have been in hotel banquet rooms on election night more than once before, crying like someone died. When you put yourself out there because you believe in a candidate or idea and it is not a successful outcome, it can be heart-breaking.

    I think we are all "good Americans", even the most batshit among us. We all believe in democracy, we all love our country, and we all want what's best, not just for ourselves, but for all Americans.

    If your candidate lost, I *cuddle you* and though it may not console you muchly tonight, remember -- you get to needle the winner throughout his or her term.

    Peace out, my fellow USMB-ers.

    One lost!
    One I have no clue, probably won't know until tomorrow at the earliest. Murray is in the lead, but you never know. Most of Washington State mails in their ballots, with Pierce county being the only county that isn't a mail in ballot only county.

    hawaii no clue!

    write in ballots are in the lead in Alaska with 40%, but they can't open the ballots for awhile. I have heard two weeks, but I don't know if that is correct.

    Good grief. Some voting laws are so horse and buggy.....

    RealClearPolitics - 2010 Hawaii Governor Race

    I dun know much about Aiona, just that Hawaii has a very odd food stamp program.
    GEMS ELECTION RESULTS

    Looks like Murkowski in Alaska for US Senate. (Take that, Palin. Did anyone you endorsed win?)


    GEMS ELECTION RESULTS

    Parnell is a Republican and an incumbent; looks as if he'll win.

    We in New York lost everything to the Dems. But winning so big in the House is a great consolation prize.

    You ran Paladino. You NY GOP-ers have no one to blame but yourselves.

    Dun choose the insane, hypocritical and stupid as your candidate next time.

    Now, time to start needling Cuomo.
