    Regardless of which way the election goes, the election will make history. I think it's fair to say that it has already, in fact, made history. It's been a memorable road so far--who'd have thought that John McCain could have become the GOP nominee after his campaign went backrupt early in the primaries, and who really expected Barack Obama--the darling of the youth--to wage better funded and more efficiently run campaign than the 'inevitable' Hillary Clinton?

    So whether we get the first African-American president or the first female vice president, here's history. We could see a Democratic landslide, or a Republican surprise win. It could even be a nailbiter to put 2000 to shame. Who can tell?

    One thing I know is that between the primary thread and the general election thread, we've had an extremely vital and fascinating discussion from all sides. And if Barack Obama does win, I'll be expecting a massive monumental scale post from Jabba-wocky.

    I'll end this by quoting Kate's post from the last presidential election thread: Remember, as always, to keep it civil. No flaming, baiting or trolling will be tolerated. Thank you.

    PCC edit: Updating the title to more accurately reflect the discussion topic.

    This *is* history in the making. We've managed to reply to this thread before it was even posted. :)

    I may lurk here later on.

    Wouldn't that mean it's the future in the making, only that the future is being made in the past?




    Just a thought.

    I really don't mind which one of the boys wins, so it's going to be a pleasant surprise either way.


    BTW, voting absentee abroad sucks so hard. My official ballot never even came. [face_frustrated]

    That is actually exactly what I had predicted too for election day, if not more for Obama.

    It's called being a centrist and acknowledging that both men have their own different strengths and weakness and that I personally will be fine with either winning.


    And [face_frustrated] was to my second comment in that original quote which you took out, so it's not fair linking the sentence and the smiley face like that.

    Only a poster with an IQ lower of Forrest Gump wouldn't know which election is referred to.

    Well, just two days to go. Should all further election related news and discussion take place here now, or should we try to stick to the main thread until the 4th?
