Good evening everyone. The polls will close in about a half hour, and we’re going to do our best to moderate the blog in real time to keep the conversation going this evening. The paper today billed this as a live chat, but never fear. It’s just an old-fashioned blog chat without the bells and whistles. We hope you’ll stick with us until we know who won the presidency, or at least until we send the editorial page to the presses and pass out from exhaustion.
