CNN projects Obama the winner in PA

Picture_1It's pretty much over for John McCain.

As of 8:43pm, CNN is projecting a win for Obama in Pennsylvania. I've got the screen grab on the left.

MSBC expects an Obama win in Pennsylvania, too.

Comments

11:00 - CNN just declared Obama winner of the Presidency. Congratulations to all of us who supported him (and well deserved).

20:13 hrs Pacific Coast time. Obama's got 273 electoral votes and NPR says McCain's going to call Obama to offer him his congratulations. It's finally done. Now for a tall glass of red wine and some chow and I'll sleep better than I have for eight god-damned years.

It's probably too much to ask, but I'd like to see everyone unite behind Obama, if the news is accurate, just as I would if McCain were the winner. Think of all the places in the world where people don't have this freedom. Yes, I'm a liberal Obama supporter, and I'm grateful to live in a free country--warts and all!

It's 338-155, with Indiana and North Carolina too close to call but with small Obama leads. People are celebrating on the streets in Harlem; at one place people flailed their whips at the street.

Gay marriage bans passed in Florida, as well as in Arizona, which defeated such a ban in 2006. A similar ban is about to pass in California, as is a 48-hour wait period for minors getting an abortion.

Coleman is up by 7,000.

NADER CONGRATULATES OBAMA ON CAMPAIGN VICTORY

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 at 12:00:00 AM

Independent candidate for President and Vice President, Ralph Nader and Matt Gonzalez, congratulated Senator Barack Obama on his decisive victory today to succeed the notorious regime of George W. Bush.

"Senator Obama led a campaign of tactical brilliance that appears to be bereft of specific mandates. It is up to an aroused citizenry to organize behind these mandates which we were privileged to advance. These progressive mandates (living wage, Medicare for all, and a just foreign policy, and many more) reflect majority support and our long overdue redirections and reforms in our country.

"Senator Obama will be President-elect Obama soon to preside over what our founders described as a representative government under our Constitution. Thomas Jefferson once said that the function of representative government is to "curb the excesses of the monied interests." The corporate dominated government that Senator Obama inherits includes what President Dwight Eisenhower cautioned the nation against in his farewell address — the military industrial complex. It includes many other priorities entrenched by "the monied interests," or global corporations, to drain and strip-mine the necessities and deserved justice long denied to so many Americans in their various roles.

"Such challenges to apply available solutions to stagnant injustices and deprivations require a transforming leader who speaks truth with democratic power to falsehood and plutocratic power. This in turn demands a deliberate, thoughtful and challenging personality.

"The Nader/Gonzalez campaign joins other Americans in wishing you well in the White House. We will remain alert to opportunities that advance those final words of the pledge of allegiance — "with liberty and justice for all.""

The pent up energy against the Bush years is flowing and showing a certain degree of strength. I expect Obama to immediately do something to address the critical problems facing the U.S. and the whole globe. Health care, infrastructure and jobs, global warming. Not meeting these goals spells political problems for Obama. At a minimum, healthcare. An austerity program will not work, and his presidency will fail. The debate ought to be and will be shortly what is to be done.
