*************************

At 1:00 pm, 11/7: BBC America someone remarked early in the evening that the "colony was [he feared] dysfunctional." Well the colony is okay for now after all.

Jesse Jackson summed up what happened very well: the intense and overt effort to suppress the vote boomeranged. There was a huge turnout; people were willing to go through intimidation, long lines, were able to overcome illegal demands they produce unnecessary IDs, the NAACP and others did send out watchers. Then Romney blew off African-Americans, women, the elderly, college young adults, the poor, Spanish people, and immigrants. Who is left? Not enough to win.

Every year now -- Jealous from NAACP said -- this push back of suppressing the vote will happen. We are like at the beginning of reconstruction. But Obama if only a couple of the horrors on the supreme court would die too -- appoint liberals. Actually two republican governors did refuse to suppress the vote. Virginia's was one of them. E.M.
