    yer

    Are we allowed to discuss this here?

    If so, Congrats to the US for an interesting new president! That was an interesting campaign but it seemed to go on forever.

    Can the world breathe a sigh of relief now? *aaaaaahhhhhhh* *phew*

    it possibly should be in non-cycling related - but if you mean politics in general on here, I think that a site that's mature enough to discuss IUD's and the various other things on here, that we should be able to have a politics discussion maturely.

    That being said, I'm pretty happy that we/the American public sent a pretty strong message to the republican party... and I hope that they respond to it.

    Please don't be offended..but the first thing we did tonight, we watched the Jon Stewart live comedy show tonight that satirized the election. ...with their intermittent announcements of real state -by-state election results. I enjoyed the show.

    If Canadians aren't allowed to have an opinion because we shouldn't/couldn't know something about U.S. national politics...then isn't watching a comedy show where Americans laugh at themselves..the best thing...for Canucks?

    OK, ok, ok.... I'm saying the wrong stuff...

    Disbelief or excitement about Obama...reminds me of when our Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau first got elected...A highly intellectual but coldly analytical Quebecois lawyer that infuriated people at times, yet did get the respect of many Canadians...regardless of their political allegiances. It was evidenced by the amount of homage paid to memory of him when he died.

    Yeah, politics is a no-no on TE. Celebrate tonight though -- I'll leave it up to Jeff and Susan to decide. Keep it in this thread m'kay?


    Historical night my friends, feels pretty damn awesome.

    I checked the FAQ and I don't see it as a no-no. I don't get it. We discuss everything else here, so why should politics be taboo.

    BUT TONITE IS FOR CELEBRATION FOR ALL OF US.

    I'm happy, too!

    A local city had something on the ballot about making pot a "low priority" for local police. I think it's going to pass.

    We also have a sad anti-gay marriage initiative, which eliminates unmarried couples (gay or straight) from being foster parents. I think it's going to pass, and I'm sad about that.

    What was your weird issue on the ballot?

    Only weird thing was slot machines in Maryland. Which isn't really all that weird.

    Yay!!! Almost 100% for me (a few local elections didn't go quite as I would have liked), but I'LL TAKE IT. YAHOO!!!!

    Of course, my state is one that still hasn't been called (5 hours after poll closing) on the Presidential. Not that it matters

    Talking Oh yes we can

    Happy and still stunned about the results. At least the 3 hour wait to vote was worth it.

    Well, I cried watching his speech tonight,and I generally pay ZERO attention to TV and/or American politics. You are very lucky to be led by a man like Obama and the rest of the world is breathing a collective sigh of relief.
