Overheard on CNN.com: Election edition


Comment of the day:

"Thank GOD for Nov. 3!"


TomInRochNY is looking forward to an end of all the negative campaign ads in this election cycle. He was one of the thousands of CNN.com readers talking about Tuesday's midterm elections. President Obama's not on the ballot, but he's at the center of the debate.


Many readers, like TWP predicted the Democrats would pay for supporting health care reform. "We promised you if you shoved that ObamaCare debacle down our throats it would cost a lot of you your jobs. Today it is time to pay the piper," he wrote. Democrats blamed Republican lawmakers for blocking the president's agenda and said he wasn't getting credit for everything he did accomplish. "Anyone driving a GM car should be thanking Obama. But don't give credit where credit is due," ethos76 said.


We also heard from a lot of people who didn't have much hope for the election.


"If anyone thinks that anything is going to be any different, you are very gullible," Domini said. MarkyGA agreed saying "I'm voting for discontent (translation: NOT voting). What's the point? Nothing but wingnuts running negative campaigns. Moderates have virtually NO ONE to vote for."
