I just got back. I didn't get a sticker.

But dang, I felt a big swell of pride filling in the circle for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

i find this very profound, and very moving. it speaks about the unconditional love and acceptance we all deserve from our parents and grandparents, no matter which paths our lives may take us, whether dizzying heights or terrible lows. we are loved, period.
What a sweet post

I went in and voted at around 10:30 this morning, wasn't registered (in Minnesota), and got all set up and finished within half an hour.

I have to say it's a pretty amazing feeling to have my first election be one of such importance.

(CNN) – John McCain and his aides are still banking on a come-from-behind victory Tuesday, but the GOP's most famous political strategist is forecasting Obama is well positioned to win.

Karl Rove, the man widely credited with engineering President Bush's two successful White House bids, is out with a new map showing the Illinois senator will take the White House in an Electoral College landslide, winning 338 votes to John McCain's 200. That would be the largest Electoral College victory since 1996, when Bill Clinton defeated Bob Dole in a 379-159 rout.

In an Electoral Map posted on Rove's Web site, the Republican mastermind shows Obama victories in several key battlegrounds, including virtually all of the states where polls suggest he currently enjoys a slim advantage. In fact, Rove believes Missouri is the only crucial battleground state McCain will carry, while Obama scores victories in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado, New Mexico, Minnesota, and Iowa. Rove also thinks Obama will win traditionally-Republican Virginia.

UPDATE: Rove has not made any definitive declarations, and writes some tight states — including Florida — could flip given some polling suggests movement in McCain's direction.

The polls are all dead here. Everyone voted early. I feel like it's been months since I voted. Running errands around town people were greeting each other with "¡Obamanos!" I didn't see any McCain signs anywhere in the whole city.

I don't recall seeing any McCain paraphernalia in the parts of Seattle I frequent .... which is highly unsurprising.

Oh yeah. The guy next door is Republican and from Seattle. I had a nice discussion with him at 3am last Saturday when we both came back at about the same time from our Halloween parties. He said he and one of his friends were the only Conservatives surrounded by Democrats.
But he is a nice guy.

It took me 1/2 an hour to vote this time.

Most times I am in and out in about 5 minutes.

It took me about 5 seconds
to decide to hit the touch screen for Obama.

He gets the benefit of my doubts this time.

In 2012 he must earn my vote.
