And Yet, the Polls are Open ...

One big diff in coverage between Canada & the USA: I'd be in handcuffs now (or at least, facing a fine!) for posting about results, if this was a Canadian election.

CNN (and, I presume, Fox, MSNBC, etc) have been on the air nation-wide with results, etc - and yet, polls are still open in much of the US.

If they had Canada-type rules, they wouldn't be able to report on NY till Hawaii closed! I figure that's one thing we can learn from the US: citizen-voters *don't* need to be "protected" by publication bans, etc.

Lieberman is now giving his victory speech...

More later.
