Coadster and her Obama fake tattoo she wore all day at school. She went to see Obama speak on Earth Day in 2007 and was very impressed with what he had to say even back then.
I'm going to write a short post tonight. It's been a long and happy night at our house. As I write this, we're listening to Obama's acceptance speech. We heard McCain's earlier and I thought it was very gracious, and in the spirit of cooperation that this country REALLY needs right now.
I'm not going to write a huge political post, because there are others who do that so much better than I, and tonight I'm so excited that all I can say is, YEA! YEA! YEA! I wish my mom were alive so I could call her and we could woo-hoo to each other and spaz-out over the phone.
The sign in front of the Deadwood today.
I figured it was pretty monumental when my sister told me that my Uncle voted for Obama, because I don't know if he has voted for a Democrat president in my lifetime. I'm not sure, but Kennedy could have been the last time for him.
I'm also thinking of Poptart, who worked so long and hard canvassing in and around Illinois. I hope she's at Grant Park right now, celebrating. She deserves it. The last time I was there was in 1984, when I went with a busload of people to hear Jesse Jackson speak the Summer before that election.
We've been hearing firworks since Obama was projected the winner. I can't imagine what it's like in big cities.
Okay, that's enough of me and my blathering. Happy election day to you all. I hope your voting lines were short.
