My custom has long been to stay up until the wee hours watching the election returns. That will be much easier this year, since I’m in Australia. Polls will close starting at about mid-morning, here in Oz time, where it will already be Wednesday. The American election is of enormous interest here–as they say, when America sneezes, Australia catches a cold–so the TV networks are planning comprehensive coverage. We’ll see what that means, but it looks like I can follow the election through the morning and into the early afternoon. So we can do a LIVE BLOG!
This has been a strange and unpredictable election year, so we can expect its culmination on Election Day to be similarly strange and unpredictable. Whatever happens, we can talk about it here.
