Facebook Status Report Roundup, The Presidential Election Edition

by Rachelle Hruska · November 5, 2008

In the first presidential election to have a tool such as facebook at the disposal of so many, within two hours, there were more facebook status updates than I have ever seen.  Thank god we didn't go on Twitter.  Here is just a small sampling of what some of our favorite NYC "guests" were saying...do you think they like Obama?
