Live Blog of Election Night 2008

I’ve been meaning to give live-blogging a go for quite a while now, but haven’t really had a good opportunity to do it.  But it’s perfect for this election night. You should see a widget below from Cover it Livc (the gold standard of live-blogging services).  My coverage starts at 6:30pm.  If you’re not familiar with how live-blogging works I’ll be posting many, many short updates over the course of the night.  I’ll mostly post on the federal races, but I’ll look to the results from the few competitive West Virginia contests as well.  I think it will be fun to read; I’m sure it will be fun, and a bit challenging, to write.

By default, the widget makes an audio “click” when I post an update, and of course you can scroll to catch up on anything you missed. So don’t feel compelled to stare at your computer screen all night.  You know, instead of staring at your TV screen all night.

For the VA GOP, I mean.

In the spirit of finding a silver lining in the clouds of last night's disaster, I note that it could have been worse: we could have had another Clinton term.

I don't know, Alex, I think I'd rather have Hillary. There's no question she has the toughness to stand up to foreign leaders America needs to stand up to. With Obama, I'm not yet convinced.
