Almost here

By Brian Williams, Anchor and managing editor

We are, in effect, on election night footing. I just came back from a walk-through of our election night studio, to get a feel for the place and see how it "reads" on camera. It looks beautiful. Tonight, Tom Brokaw and Andrea Mitchell and Chuck Todd and others will stay late to do some further checks. Then we fly to Florida to catch up with the Obama campaign tomorrow -- then it's back to New York on Friday for the final stretch. Tuesday night will come down to having the best team, armed with the best facts and a keen sense of history, to cover this election. I hope you can join us for all of it -- starting with tonight's broadcast, of course. Miles to go before we sleep.
