Polls close in the east in a couple hours so here’s a thread for discussion about whatever ends up going down tonight. I’ll post some updates later.

Earlier in the day, Hillary tried to prove that she’s ready to fill Obama’s shoes, because she said that voting for herself was a “humbling” experience. If she wins Obama might as well go ahead and leave the selfie-sticks behind as a gift.

Both Clinton and Trump are in Manhattan tonight watching the returns. Brace yourselves…
