    I would hope that it broke internet records. No one was on the internet in 1992, and what a 1/10 of what we have now were on in 2000?

    Not counting reelections because fewer people care about those. I doubt Obama's party will be as big in 2012 as 08 if he wins.
    Therefore he doesn't exist

    I don't think he means internet records specifically for the inauguration, I think he's going for internet traffic in general.

    It's held on a Tuesday due to the fact that the vast majority of the nation was also rural. In order to get to your polling place, you would have to travel. If election day had been held on a Monday, people would have likely missed church on Sunday in order to make it in time.

    They also wanted to make it as early in the week as they could -- not sure why.
    You know, I think I heard that thing about having to travel so they couldn't miss church. Thanks a lot!
