Congrats everyone on what seems to be a straight-forward night.

Now- to bed!

It turned out that Ohio was the icing on the cake but not what won it for the president. Still, downtown was fun tonight around Fountain Square. I met people from North Carolina, Tennessee, California and Sweden. Definitely an interesting night! Now, let's put the vitriol behind us, take down the yard signs and get moving as a nation.

Well, it's over. Congrats on surviving the seemingly endless campaign, fellow Cincinnatians. We all deserve an ice cold Hudepohl.

What ended up happening? It was around 11:10 last night and I was watching NBC's coverage. They had the map out on the ice of the states turning red or blue. Like I said, around that time last night it was shockingly between Ohio and Florida... Florida had about 90% of its precincts in while Ohio only had about half. They ended up saying Obama won Ohio and everyone was going crazy and cheering, and then seeing Obama had won. It was interesting because Cuyahoga County and Hamilton County still had a long way to go while Miami-Dade was the only county left in Florida, which knowing South Florida it was going to go blue. I know Virginia and North Carolina were a hell of a lot closer to deciding than Ohio too.

The predictions are actually pretty accurate. Even when there is a large percentage of unreported votes they can make a call depending on the outstanding votes and how they can predict they will be cast. The historical voting patterns have a lot to do with this. I find it quite amazing how accurate they can be.

I don't think they've called Florida yet, still too close. However, this time - it doesn't matter.

Note to self: DO NOT DEPEND ON FLORIDA!!!

A friend of mine from Warren County is blaming Obama's win on Cuyahoga County, "the mistake on the lake". Um ... He won lots of other counties in Ohio, and elsewhere, too.

People are so stupid. Or maybe I just need new friends.

Probably neither. I have yet to see such a polarizing election season as this one.

I live in Warren County, and have not gone out of my way to make any friends out here.. I think OhioGirl may be onto something..

Although Obama won Hamilton County again last night, as he did in 2008. Obama also took Dayton's Montgomery County. There's no doubt though that the Cleveland and Toledo areas carried the president's win. Hamilton, Montgomery and Franklin counties just sealed it.
