Kerry has 56% of the vote so far - which is pretty close to the 58% number we were quoted around suppertime. Joe Hoeffel is trailing Specter by 1% at this point ... well within the margin of error. Paul Skoles has definitely lost to the incumbent, Republican Weldon. This is not a surprise, Dr. Skoles was a late-in-the-race replacement for another candidate who was shipped off to Afghanistan.
I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for a win in Florida or Ohio - though Florida is looking pretty grim right now. I suppose when I wake up tomorrow, I'll have a pretty good idea what kind of country I'll be living in for the next four years. I'm surprised it's as down to the wire as it is - I guess living in Pennsylvania, I had a feeling it was going to be a surprise landslide. And sure enough - it was. HERE. But not around the country.
I'm counting on Kerry to win - mostly because I intend to write to him to ask if he'll name me Ambassador to Middle Earth. (Though I'd settle for just Gondor, or even Rivendell.)
