Too bad the Obama DOJ will shoot it down.

A party needs 51 seats out of the 100 for a majority, thus allowing them to push more of their agenda through congress. If it's tied at 50 then the vice president gets the deciding vote so if it's tied then whatever party wins the presidency essentially has the majority. It's going to go to the Dems it's basically mathematically impossible at this point for the Repubs to get 51 seats.

Elizabeth Warren is wowing the crowd with her concession speech.

California, Hawaii and Washington have been called for Obama.

Not really, only if they are abusing the law by being for profit. And for all the fuss they made, it's been quite unsuccessful here in CA, pretty much nothing has been done by the feds.

From what I understand the DOJ has been going hard after the marijuana laws.

Yeah, but isn't the tiny margin alarming? The difference was almost nothing.

Thumb resize.

As a gay American, I am so relieved, so happy, and so proud.

I feel so relieved. I was feel nauseous earlier at the idea of Romney as president.

Thanks America for an entertaining evening and congrats to the Dems for taking the WH and, probably, the Senate.
