The Day I (Almost) Met Barack Obama

Regardless of what happens today, this has been the most exciting time for me in my political life.  (And by political life I mean Sunday mornings when I'm on the couch sipping coffee and watching Meet the Press, Face the Nation and This Week with George Stefanopol;alksnfa.)

I don't remember a time when people were so energized, motivated, vocal and strong in their opinions.  And I LOVE it.  No matter what side of the ticket you support, this will be a time we remember forever.  

I personally hope the election goes to Obama and Biden.  I admire Senator Obama's intelligence, his demeanor and ability to surround himself with incredible leaders.  But most of all, I believe in and support his message of hope combined with hard work and personal responsibility.

I had a (Sometimes!) Serendipitous encounter with Senator Obama a few months ago and it showed me that the man has got some discipline!  You can read more about that here.

And now I must go hide under my covers until this whole thing is over.

You are too funny. Come out from those covers and go stand in line and vote. One polling place we passed this morning the line was at least 1 mile long and it is POURING rain all day today.

Already voted! We have early voting in Oregon and get to MAIL our ballots in--no lines, no crowds and nothing else for me to do but hide under the covers and bite my nails!

Rain and voting. Fun mix. I voted at 7:15 this morning. I drove by polling places that had huge lines. It took me about 30 minutes. Of course VA is already in the national news for voting problems. Yeah for us.

Can I go back to bed now and hide under the covers?

We aren't going to hide under the covers tonight. We are going out for dinner and drinks. Seems appropriate:)

Cool Breeze and I each waited about 30 minutes to vote this morning. We attended a family funeral, and heard stories of hour-and-a half long waits, broken voting machines, insufficient parking......you name it. It may be tomorrow morning before all of the votes are counted.

Voted and over. I'm gonna have to email you with something that one of the people here at work said. I SOOO wanted to use it for blog fodder but I'd most certainly be dooced *LOL*

Ha! I heard at lunch that there were reports that Georgia's early voting may not have counted. ACK!
