"Michigan is decided. George W. Bush has carried the state of Michigan."
"What an upset."
"So Michigan goes for Bush, Colorado is still undecided. Bush is still holding a narrow lead, but it is too close to call."
"We are getting word from the Bush campaign that no votes will be contested, at this time."
"Clearly the Bush campaign is waiting on Colorado. Even if it goes for him Bush will only have 271 electoral votes, the same total he received eight years ago."
"Wow. I'm just looking at the map and cannot believe it. Montana for the Democrat and Michigan for the Republican."
"And Ron Paul, while he ha caused some problems he did not take a state."
"Well, the polls have just closed in Alaska and we cannot, repeat, cannot project a winner."
"The Bush campaign is certainly did not expect this."
"Ron Paul is in second, but he is surging."
"We are looking at the possibility that Ron Paul could end up winning Alaska, and thus take away three delegates from Bush. Delegates that he'll need should he take Colorado."
"If Bush wins Colorado, this election goes to the House."
"It's 2000 on steroids."
"The polls have shifted in Alaska, Ron Paul is now leading Bush in Alaska."
"Hope is alive for the Paul campaign tonight."
"Hold on, we can now project that Bush has won the state of Colorado. Colorado will remain in the Republican column tonight."
"Alaska is the state will decide whether Bush is elected President, or if this election goes to the House."
"I can only imagine people's reactions later this morning..."
"We are now able to make a projection in the race for the White House. Congressman Ron Paul, Libertarian Candidate has won the state of Alaska. He wins Alaska, and no candidate receives the needed delegates to become President of the United States."
"We are now getting word that the Obama campaign is challenging the results in Colorado and Michigan, and the Bush campaign is challenging the results in Alaska, so is election over?"
"Well, the results in Colorado could shift in Obama's favor, but I don't think so. The only recount that could shift the election is Alaska, and if shifts for Bush, then he's President again."
