Obamoose '08

It Is Done.

My votes are cast. Now we settle in to wait.

I was at my polling place for about half an hour, which I know is nothing compared to the waits other people are facing, but I've never seen a line even half that long at my precinct before. And I know I'm seeing a higher percentage of "I Voted!" stickers than usual. So vital signs are strong.

Still, as I was waiting to fill out my ballot, two guys who had just finished ran off together, chanting "Obama! Obama!" Another guy standing in line pointed out that this is not exactly a courageous statement of conviction in San Francisco. Still, it warmed my heart. Not going to make any strong statements yet -- this article explains why. But this thing could really happen. Wow.

So I just want to say...

Just in case the unthinkable happens and I'm too depressed to admit this later, I want to make sure everyone remembers that today was a good day.

A very, very VERY good day.

Hooray for all of us!!!
