    I don't know the future of POTUS, though I do recall them saying sometime back it would last until Nov 5.

    Here's a posting from ScottWalterman.com, a host on POTUS 08:

    "I'm also in the final few days of my employment at XM. This just compounds all of this anticipation about the election. I'll be leaving XM on November 15th.

    "I'm not going to be retained by the newly merged company. I'm not sure yet what my last day on the air will be, it could be November 14th - that decision should come soon I'm told. Stay tuned for updates."

    I thought originally the channel was supposed to go until Jan 20th. I guess they could cut it short after the election.

    Not a heck of a lot to talk about after tomorrow...unless we get into one of those "hanging chad" sort of situations.

    I will just kill myself if we have a hanging chad, I'm so sick and tired of this election... This thing has gone on for too long, and cost too much... Ugh.

    Let's not do ourselves any bodily harm. But I'll bet somebody somewhere is going to make a big stink about this...

    Yeah I didn't mean I would PHYSICALLY kill myself... I'm just so tired of it all. :)

    I won't be missing this channel when it's gone. Ugh.

    I guess it's not too early to start campaigning for the 2012 election.

    it's never too early to start campaigning for 2012. i'm surprised no one announced they were running at 11:01 pm est (one minute after the networks called it for obama) tuesday.

    They've quietly changed the branding on the channel to "Politics Of The United States" instead of branding it the "election channel" so I'm guessing they are keeping it around.

    I really wish they would introduce a morning news program on POTUS. I think that would go along way and keeping interest on the channel.

    Vinny is gone. I thought his show was pretty good. They kept Ron Silver but it looks like his show is only an hour long which sucks. Pete's Big Mouth is now called Stand Up with Pete Dominick and it's 3 to 6 now.

    Update: Vinny is doing mornings on 108, which will now be called "Sirius Stars 2" starting next Monday.
