11 PM UPDATE….I figured CNN would call the election at 11:01 Eastern, but I was off by a minute. They called it at 11:00.
….I guess I should be feeling a sense of excitement, but what I mostly feel is an immense sense of relief. Just a complete, unmitigated, totally drained sense of relief that George Bush will finally be packed up and sent home to Crawford. For just this moment, I don’t even care whether Barack Obama will be a great president. I’m just grateful that for the next four years our president will be at least minimally competent and grounded in reality. Thank God.
….CNN has called Florida for Obama.
….Colorado goes for Obama. Obama is up to 338 electoral votes so far.
