It's here and it's real: ELECTION 2008! Holy smokes - returns are starting to roll in and wow is it ever exciting! So far by CNN's projections John McCain has taken South Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Kentucky; Obama wins New Jersey, Illinois, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont; and — this is huge! — NBC has projected Barack Obama to take Pennsylvania. Whoa! That is a HUGE piece of the pie. He's leading in Flordia too but who KNOWS with that state — no one should be counting their change-chickens until the fat lady sings with will.i.am and John Legend. Sorry, that made no sense but my mind's still blown by CNN's awesome HOLOGRAM! If anything could upstage a historic Obama presidency, it's that.
Anyhoo — I'm here at the CNN Grill liveblogging with Glynnis MacNicol, my trusty partner in all things Campaign 2008 — the debate liveblogs, the madcap road trips to New Hampshire and D.C. and Denver and Minneapolis, the vlogs and blogs and hours of many sometimes-happy returns over lo these 20 months. For us, and for everyone, it all comes down to tonight. We know you have many options for your election-night media consumption, and we thank you for any time you might spend here with us, on this Night of Nights. Our liveblog is below. It's been our pleasure to share this incredible campaign with you.
