Election Day

I've already voted. My kids have already voted. Cousin C, too. Now all we can do is wait for the results.

Voter registrations and the heavy early voting turnout certainly point to an Obama win. I hope he locks it up early in the evening. My nerves can't take much more of this.

How I wish WE could do early voting in Missouri. The line was over an hour long and my toes were frozen! However, I figure it's better than it'll be tonight.

Best of Luck!

And although I look on McCain with some sympathy (one of my uncles suffered, and did not survive Japanese captivity), I do NOT think he is what the world, let alone the USA, needs at the moment.

Gae, in Callala Bay, where we think we are hard done by if we have to queue for five minutes in order to vote (it's compulsory here).

Early voting is the best thing since air conditioning.

Gae, I respect McCain's Vietnam experience, but it's not something that translates to the presidency. His behavior during this campaign has been erratic, to put it gently, and he is nothing like the man he appeared to be 8 years ago. Maybe this is the reality, and the other was a carefully crafted fiction, but whatever. He's not up to the challenges we face. Obama is well-educated and smart, and also a calm, balanced, reasoned, middle-ground person (despite the shrieking right wing claims that he's "far left" he's anything but).
