It was standing room only inside the Manning Bar at the University of Sydney to watch CNN's live coverage of the election returns on the big screen. Amidst a sea of balloons more than 1500 students, election aficionados and journalists from Australia, the US and the world were there to experience Election Day Spectacular. Spectators listened to our pundits' expert commentary and some lucky punters won film passes, books and DVDs as door prizes.
