In a few minutes the results start coming in.
Here are a couple of things to keep in mind.
The House of Representatives currently has 235 Dems, and 199 Republicans.
The Senate has 51 Dems including 2 Independents who caucus with them, and 49 Republicans.
How will this be changed by the end of the night is anybody's guess, polls be damned.
I, for one, hope McCain/Palin pull it out.
I voted last week, and have today, and tomorrow off, so will be watching the news with interest.
Al Martinez, of the Los Angeles Times, wrote a great column, yesterday, in which he said, among other things:
I will have all of my decisions with me in my voting guide. Each choice is clearly marked. I could be out of the booth in less than a minute.
But I don't rush. I pause to take pride in the achievement of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams and the others who gave me this right.
It will be a day of glory. I will tell the future what I expect beyond the voting booth, beyond the cheers and the tears, beyond the divisive rhetoric of yesterday's demagogues, and into the new mornings of tomorrow's decision makers.
And even when I'm no longer in a position to chronicle America's progress, others will. And they'll be watching far beyond the day after tomorrow.
An excellent essay worth reading as you watch the results pile up...

Over the past year I've not covered politics, and issues, on this blog, choosing instead to do so as a part of the Stumble Upon Community where I Thumb Up, Thumb Down, and comment on anything, and everything, and The Choice to Read is Yours...
I've read, heard, and viewed enough material, since 2005, from sources that I believe, respect, and trust, that I am seriously concerned about the future of America, the land of Freedom, Capitalism, and Democracy, that my Father fled to from Communist Yugoslavia, after WW2, in order to build a new life, and raise a family.
