Big day

Big day for team U.S.A. today. And maybe for team World Financial Markets. I’m jiggling my foot under my desk, like you do when you are nervous or excited. Something else people do when they are nervous, sometimes, is chew on a toothpick.

    As a displaced Brit and Disenfranchised American Resident Alien – frustrating day for me. I feel like the designated driver at a fantastically drunken party. So you Americans out there ; get out and vote!

    Obama is the right choice. Thx USA!

    I guess most people here in old europe say: Obama is the right choice!

    I read if Europe were allowed to vote, that Obama had 72% of the votes.

    And thanks to all people that actually did vote!

    David Letterman said, that the weather played a BIG role in voting. Because McCain could have won, if hell froze over. 🙂

    Australia is similar.

    It’s particularly pleasing to hear that voter numbers were up.  Down this end of the world voting is compulsory… the idea of it being voluntary is downright weird. Turnout here is ~95% 🙂

    Not that it made any difference in my partic state, but it’s the thought that counts…

    Be clear, the Republicans got what they deserved–they earned the opportunity to be thrown out by losing their way, abandoning the ideals of the party of Lincoln, the ideals epitomized so eloquently by Ronald Reagan.
