if the incredible comes true and obama is elected i wonder how americans will feel having a president who can speak in paragraphs again…..or would that mark obama as an elitist……?
My aunt also 'fessed up to voting Democrat for the first time in her life. She said McCain's VP choice just couldn't be countenanced.

I'm sorry I can't wish the two of you good luck -- but I wish you both well.
Tell us, was your precinct crowded, uncrowded, were there goof-ups or did things go smoothly? Incredibly!
What was your experience like? Great!
Did you have new voting machines, paper ballots or was it all digital? Paper fill in the dots.
Any place still using punchcards?
Did you talk to anyone in line? Just about the weather... though I quized the volunteers.
Were the helpers helpful? Helpful and plentiful. Like 40 people!
Did you see anyone having difficulty? Maybe they couldn't find their name? Maybe their place had already been signed? No trouble!
Did you drive someplace to vote or was it within walking distance of your home? Walked a few blocks.
How long did it take from the moment you arrived until you actually voted? 15 minutes, including registration and jawjacking with the help!
What else was being voted on? Bond issues? For what? Schools?, water or other services? Not much to do there. Mostly Republicans running unopposed.
What parties, other than the Democrats and the GOP, were on the ballot? Nader, Barr... surpisingly Cynthia Mckinney and some other folks.
How many other Presidential elections have you participated in and how did this one compare? 6 Haven't been this excited since Ross Perot. First time since Perot I got to vote for, instead of against somebody! Wisconsin is a breeze compared to Florida for voting... but I've never had trouble with it.
Wishing free food and drinks for the Ticomayas!
