You're confusing the local sidebar, which is the first story listed online, with the print front page. Online, we have a huge supply of AP articles being constantly updated about the presidential race. In print, we take a snapshot of the news at our deadline and freeze that moment in time. I hope you can pick up a copy this morning.
Thanks to all who participated. Check out the front page Wednesday and let us know what you think.
OUR NEW 44TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES- PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA!!!!!!
I have a dream...We the people have spoken...
A variation of ragman's--Yes We Can, Yes He Did!
Yes We Can, Yes We Did!
The times they are a changing...
When he passed the civil rights act---Lyndon Johnson was right--"we WILL overcome."
I had no idea you were so formal.
We're still taking final nominations. Now it's a race to finish up all of the pages.
GOODMORNING PRESIDENT OBAMA(when he wins)
BAM its OBAMA for the WIN (when he wins)
Barack Solid????Come on now....I know we like are puns and all but....man...."President Obama"Simple and to the point. I realize it's not super sexy, but it get's the job done.
Based on the results so far, the leading contender is "Barack solid."
Reaction? Other suggestions?
I love word play as much as the next guy -- OK, probably more than the next guy. But what does Barack 'n' roll really mean? We could run "Barack-a-bye, baby" or "Barack Around the Clock," but they don't really sum up the election, do they?
Thanks for pounding out a suggestion, dog.
Barack 'n roll! if Obama wins
Our initial headline suggestions aren't based on our preferences. Rather, they're based on what all of the prognosticators have been saying. We're still taking nominations. Keep 'em coming.
I remember the pundits being wrong a few times so McStunner isn't appropriate. Barackslide.....what if it's close, that description wouldn't be accurate. But seeing how you people are thinking, I'm pretty sure who y'all are rooting for.How bout if Obama wins...Reparations!!!!!!!McCain........Whew!
i am thinking food!
PIG LIPS DROWNED IN GRITS....mmmmmmmm
With a name like Satan, isn't it really your intention to stir up trouble when there's nothing there? Anyway, keep those ideas coming, everyone. We don't have a winner yet.
Happy Days Are Here Again!
Since the VicAd's primary concern these days is stirring things up when there's nothing really there, how about:
"WHITEY BETTER WATCH HIS BACK"
"A Day to Remember" "History is Made" or "History in the Making" or "A Date in History" no matter how it turns out (unless of course it is a repeat of before and we have no clear winner) it will be history in the making. We will either have a first woman vice president alongside the oldest newly elected US president or we will have our first African American US president.
lol...Object!!! It's perfect: "Maverick" could symbolize Barack or McCain in this case...
Wouldn't it be interesting if we could deliver a different headline to readers based on who they wanted to win? I suspect McCain supporters would object to your suggestions.
"BaROCK the Vote"
"Move over Maverick"
Thanks for the suggestion. Shouldn't we identify the winner in the main headline? Also, an exclamation point might give readers the impression we're endorsing the result.
A catchy yet neutral headline isn't as easy as it looks. Please keep those ideas coming.
Yes, we'll need to think about how to handle an undecided result. In 2000, I wrote headline, "State of confusion," to reflect the upheaval in Florida.
Yes, this is a historic election. We'd like to come up with a headline that captures the moment. A word question: Is it historic or historical? The play was historical. It was a historic event. I think that's the correct usage. I'll have to look it up.
Do you really think we're about to become a Muslim country?
"Country Still Divided". If the Democrat Party wins a super majority in both houses and the President's seat, how about "One Party America", after all a Presidential Obama would choose at least two Supreme Court Judges, and the United States would indeed have a single party control of the government. Then we will need to hold our tongue and not be critical of other countries that have a one party government. I do not believe either candidate will be able to unite the citizens of this country. Have you thought about a headline in case the election can not be called today? "Winner Unknown"
This would fit no matter what. HISTORICAL!
I have a gutsy feeling it could be something like..."Entering a Muslim Era..."
