@anotherbee:  PR had to follow federal law, but could only vote in primaries, not general elections. If it becomes a state, then it would get electoral votes for the next election, if I’m not mistaken. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

@MissSangria:  That’s amazing to me. I voted this morning in VA & it took less than 20 minutes.

@EastMeetsBarn:  I believe we’re still several steps away from PR becoming a state, but it started down that path tonight.

I think Puerto Rico is deciding whether they WANT to petition for statehood.  If they choose to, they will try, and then it will become an issue for the federal government to decide.  Apparently, the GOP has said that in order for PR to be considered for statehood they’d have to make their official language English, which is a load of mierda de caballo…

I’ve had CNN all day watching the election coverage and I’m very anxiously watching the rerturns as we eat dinner here. It’s really exciting even though I couldn’t vote.

@sarahbabs:  Aren’t you nervous relying on the Huffington Post because they’re so pro-Obama?  I am trying to look at Conservative/moderate sites to avoid getting my hopes up…!
