Usually it's all bluster, and lives go on despite the November results.
While hosting a town hall meeting in Saudi Arabia today, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked if she would leave the country if a certain candidate were elected president. Got a guess on who the candidate was?

Clinton took it in stride. Although she only answered one of the questions.
“Well, the short answer is no," she said. "I will not be emigrating. I will be visiting as often as I can.”
The AP reports she went on to say:
"It is part of the American political environment that people are always speculating on who will run for president.” And of course, she noted: “I’ve gone through that experience personally, so I’m very well acquainted with it.”
