America votes 2008: election update 4

  • So far, the Democrats already have four Senatorial pickups. Let's hope they reach that magic number of 60 Senate seats.

  • It looks like Obama will carry Florida and its 27 electoral votes. I'm a bit surprised the popular vote margin is so narrow at the moment, but the night is still young, and we've still got California and New York...

  • Exit polls (read about them here) have shown Americans aren't really concerned with race, and those who were... voted Obama. Age, on the other hand, is of greater concern to the American public, and, as we all know, McCain is one of the older presidential candidates in America's history.

  • At last, perhaps America's international reputation can be restored after eight years of consistent tarnishing. Tonight's the night.
