Me too. I woke at 3am this morning and turned the tv on. Morning Joe starts at 3am out here.

Did you guys watch Barack's rally last night on C-span? The last one of the campaign? It was so moving, especially the end and the story the little church lady who started the chant with 20 people way back when.. at the very beginning...Fired up Ready to go and how this has come full circle! It was awesome.

I am so nervous, but hopeful. Really I am.

Here is a nice little story and video to inspire you...

The Year of Decision

From TPM Reader JV:

My grandmother voted today. She is 86 years old. A white woman born to hardscrabble cattle ranchers in the most desolate part of New Mexico. Our ancestry goes back through West and East Texas, through Tennessee, the Cumberland Gap, and Virginia. This side of the family rode in the Texas 2nd Cavalry during the Civil War. A dark reminder for me of my family's past, she still has receipts for slaves that our family owned. Her first husband was killed in the Battle of the Bulge, sacrificing his life like so many other young men. My mother was two months old at the time. My grandmother has voted Republican her entire life, but today she voted for Barack Obama.

tell me about it. I'm about to leave in an hour to park off property, take a bus to work, go through secret service security and then have to make my way around the resort with 2000+ members of the press from all over the world, on top of all of the security and everyone else. It's exciting and completely scary at the same time that this is at my work. I get off work about 11:00 tonight but who knows how long it will actually take me to get out of the place.

All my friends I've spoken to today are heading north to Canada if this election goes to McCain. Canada, beware.

If only it were that easy. As much as I would like Obama to win—and I really do—I think the doomsday scenarios put forth by supporters of both candidates are insane. The sun will still rise in the east tomorrow, the world will still spin on its axis, etc. I think a McCain victory is not what the country and the world needs, but it won't be the end of the world.

Didn't know you were still so confident with McCain winning.

I love how 50% of America thinks there's nothing strange about almost 90% of the rest of the world supporting Obama.

That's because the rest of us are socialists.

I just made red velvet cupcakes. Shortly I will slather them in white and blue icing. And write appropriate things on them. Giddy up!

Off to an election partay at 6.
