I hope I live to see another 1960/1976-style election. Going into the night with all those states up for grabs has to be super exciting. I guess the closest we’ve come to such in modern times was 2000, but that became all about FL pretty early in the night.

I also hope to avoid another 2012, which proved that an election can still be super-boring even with a relatively close PV margin.
