    Did you vote today?

    It took me about 40 minutes to vote.

    Yep. I usually do early voting to rule out any wait times, but I slacked off this year and went today at 5:00. I waited 1 hour, 5 minutes.

    No (as I'm not American).

    Looks like a decent result for the Democrats though from news reports. Tbh it seems about time the U.S woke up to Bush (he really is a bit of a tool) and the Republicans. Heck it might even stop some of the hate (Western hate at least) towards America if the suggested results stick.

    I think this has been a very shrewd move by Bush. Going into the Presidential elections all the trouble can be blamed on the Democrats.

    I don't understand USA elections (is this like the equivalent of our local elections?) but that Hilary Clinton chap seems pleased with herself so that must be a good thing.

    I don't really understand either. Is Hilary Clinton the president now?

    If the results stick, I guess a congratulation is in order.

    Atleast it's better than the alternative.


    To clarify
    : Democrats have both the senate and the congress at the moment.

    I think only half of the seats in the two houses come up for election every two years. Anyone elected sits a term of 4 years. The Presidential Election takes place in two years time. It means that halfway through a Presidents 4 year term, he/she can lose control of both houses. I think that has happened this time. Have not seen the full results yet. As I said 'I think'.

    The Americans will correct me soon.

    My entire knowledge of the American political system comes from watching The West Wing, and most of that is

    But I think that happened to President Bartlett once, and it wasn't a good thing, because nothing ever got done.

    Nothing changes there then. Everything that went wrong over the last 6 years has been Bill Clinton's fault

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.
