History.


Yesterday, I voted for Barack Obama for President of the United States of America.

Texas has "early voting," and turnout has been brisk.

All sorts of memories of discrimination -  de facto and de jure -  flooded through me as I worked through the screen. 

And with one touch of a flashing red button I blasted them all away.

Good luck, Senator Obama.

And all you folks out there... go make some history, okay?

I can hardly wait until this thing is over. I've never been this nervous/excited about an election. I'll be dropping my early vote in the box behind the library today!

Cheers,
Christy

This election buzz is making me so nervous. I'm not sure how I will react if the McCain/Palin ticket win...doomed I'm sure. Being a RealClearPolitics Junkie I am constantly looking at the electoral map and seeing which states are solid Obama, Leaning Obama and Toss-Ups.As the map changes so do my hopes and dreams, sometimes the map looks awful, sometimes fabulous. Whether it's Ohio and PA in toss-up..or New Hampshire leaning or solid. eeeeee! WTF! .....this daily change does my head in. Will it be leaning or solid tomorrow? Can I even stand to look? Wednesday I hope it will be over, and a burning beacon of hope, that is Obama, will be declared the REALCLEARWINNER. Go Obama!

Welcome, crazy brit. I've been needing antacids for the first time in ages, myself. I am not complacent about Obama's lead in the polls and will not rest easy until McCain concedes.

Thanks for the visit and comment, and I hope you'll be back.
