Been there -- done that. At 7:45 a.m., I was the only one there. Mysteriously, the lobby smelled strongly of marijuana.
Hope turnout goes up as the day goes on. This is supposed to be a record setting day.
The partisans had tacked up their last flyers 100 feet away.
Yes -- I voted for Obama. That became inevitable when Edwards dropped out. I've seen Clintons; I didn't like the first one (above all else because of his cave on welfare); I don't want another one.
But by voting for Obama, I don't say I'm supporting Obama. I'm supporting values of democracy, some equity, some decency and more rule of law through a blunt instrument that is available to me. Oh yes, Obama's a good one. But Presidents are what we, the people, make them. Should we be so fortunate as to get a President Obama, we'll have to stay on his case and push for a different, better country. Nothin' else to do.
