Presidential Election

November 6, 2012

Suspense to the end, Obama, Romney yield to voters


Attorney John Martin, from Golden, Colo., filled out his mail-in ballot over the weekend. He didn't want to reveal whom he had chosen, but said he'd been "obsessively" watching the election for months.

Now, he's ready to move on.

"I'm old enough to be able to live with either outcome," he said.

Sometimes, it all seemed like overkill.

Biden stopped in at Mimi's Cafe in Sterling, Va., after a rally nearby. As one family left, a youngster grumbled, "So we came into the restaurant and still didn't get any food."
