Northwest races down to the wire


I had grand plans of coming to the office this morning and writing definitive post-election blogs about the races we've been following in Washington and Oregon. But it's almost time for lunch, and the two most interesting races -- Dave Reichert vs. Darcy Burner for Washington's 8th Congressional District and Gordon Smith vs. Jeff Merkley for Oregon's Senate seat -- are still too close to call. 

Anyway, in lieu of election analysis -- which will be forthcoming as soon as we know who won -- I am posting the following video clip from the end of Star Wars VI: The Return of the Jedi, in which people all across the galaxy celebrate the Rebel victory over the Empire.
