A couple of hours ago, I cast my vote for President of the United States. I was the 1,278th to vote in my precinct. Do you realize that's an astounding turnout? I didn't even know there were that many people in my precinct! Such a big turnout. I drove by a couple of polling places today and there were people lined up around the block, waiting to vote.
So now I am listening to the news. I am a little frustrated. Almost immediately the newscasters started calling states for Obama, even before the votes had been counted and called in. Weird, why would you call a state for a candidate when only a small percentage of the precincts have counted their votes and called them in? How would you know if you should attribute the electoral votes of that state to that particular candidate, if all the precincts hadn't called in yet?
Okay, the newscasters just announced for Obama. They said it would be impossible for McCain to win. I guess it looks like Obama's going to be the forty-fourth President of The United States of America. He'll be President Barack Obama.
Sigh. Obama isn't my choice. Oh well, I said how I felt, I better not cry but move on. I don't think he'll be best for the country, but there's nothing I can do about that right now...
So, how are you feeling about the results of the election right now?
Throwing a party? Mourning? Somewhere in between?
Drop a comment and let me know how you are feeling right now...
