As the campaign ends, some faux comments from faux Ticket readers

November 4, 2008 |  7:00 am

It's been right around 22 months since this presidential campaign officially began and almost 17 months since the Ticket's launch to chronicle politics in general and the race in particular around the clock from coast to coast.

We said in our very first item that we wanted this blog to be a conversation and we're delighted it has turned out that way.

Although we'll be around blogging on the formation of the new administration and the new Congress and California's developing races in the new year, now that the presidential campaign is ending we wanted to share with our readers a faux-selection of TBipartisanship on the dance floor at the end of a long campaign between Barack Obama and Sarah Palinicket comments to show the range of interests and passions of our loyal visitors.

Just in case you haven't been following how our readers really feel.

The Ticket has received a little more than 85,000 comments from our millions of regular readers in recent months. These are not some of them:
