It is really quiet here in the NBC studio in Washington, DC. Most of the action tonight is in New York... unfortunately, we have no giant ice rink with the electoral map painted on it here.
Along with Professor Thurber one of the experts here tonight is Ken Duberstein, a Republican strategist. He just said, "If Sarah Palin is Cinderella, it's just about to strike midnight for her."
Also, off camera he was just told that NBC is calling Ohio for Obama. His response: it's over.
I am actually surprised that it is taking so long for the networks to call this thing...
