Well Gang. It is the eve of the election and I just wanted to write everyone to say it sure has been fun talking shop with all of you.
It's been exciting, frustrating, and eye-opening.
I will not be returning to this arena after today because no matter who wins, my wish is to move forward, and clear my head from this election that has been all consuming for me.
In all of my life, I have never felt this passionate about an election, as all of you have too. I feel that no matter what is happening, that the most important thing is to vote. I have become so passionate about that aspect, that I cannot bear even having a conversation with a person who does not vote. I just cannot bear the ignorance that accompanies that kind of a person.
I am for Obama, and that being said, I pray to god, that tomorrow brings us a great change in history, and that we have our first non-white president. I would be honored to see that in my lifetime, and it is about time!
GO OBAMA!!! From a Catholic, white girl who is ready for some good change!
Good night all,
-Old Biddie

I feel the same, it's extremely difficult speaking to someone who seems to have their head up their butt about this election. I too voted for Obama & tomorrow we'll see him get elected. It'll be a great day! OBAMA '08!!!!!!

Wait, we don't all have to do that do we?? I can't just go back to normal life. I'm going to need 18 days in a silent decompression chamber hanging from my ankles.
