3. It was a valiant try. In the big war, not every battle has a clear winner

North Carolina broke the morale of the Romney camp. Once they saw the numbers that were turning out for early voting, they knew they were beaten. Remember, just a few days before that, they tried to pull resources away from NC to move into OH and PA. They never had their feet under them after that. From that point forward, it was all bluffing and bullshitting.

I am dead serious when I say that NC was a huge strategic victory in this war, even though we won't be counting the electoral votes.

Hats off to every Tarheel that was out there in the trenches.


I have zero doubt that we will bag NC next time, and we're also going to get Georgia, and maybe SC.

5. Me too!

And CO has Udall, Bennett, DeGette, Polis, and Perlmutter representing us. And we turned the State House blue, legalized pot, gave a thumbs down to Citizens United. AND Longmont voted to ban fracking in CO ( up against half million dollars of big gas money). Doesn't get much better than that in a divided swing state in a divided nation.
