Obama, Romney Tweet Their Election Day Snacks

Election Day Fun: Obama, Romney Food Art

Both candidates have been busy all day, making last minute speeches and appearances in their final moments before they just sit and wait for the news.

Let's take a look:

Meanwhile, in Ohio, Barack Obama has a few minutes of coffee talk with Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z.
