      • Jon Stewart: John, uh, there's gonna be an awful lot of challenges facing who ever wins this election. What is the president-elect really going to be up against?
        John Oliver: Well, Jon, the incoming president is inheriting a multi-layered problem. One layer being a debt to China so enormous, the Chinese are now legally allowed to keep you as pets.
        Another layer a financial implosion so dire that Americans have started emailing Nigerian princes. And uh, quick word to the Nigerians on that one, don't do it, it's a scam!

      • Stephen Colbert: Now, while we will not be able to call this race until the Supreme Court votes 5 to 4 to stop the count, it's not too early to ask what's at stake here. To find out, let's check in with senior electoral correspondent John Oliver at out election center. John.
        John Oliver: Hi there and good evening gentlemen, good evening everyone. First, may I say, I am overawed by the majesty of your constitutional system, this peaceful transfer of power wherein two men vie to grab the reins of the most powerful nation on Earth and guide it into the new millennium. A responsibility to mankind, both great and noble.
        Jon Stewart: I'm gonna go out on a limb here, John, and say your visa is up, isn't it?
