So, yes, I voted this morning, and it was just as great an experience as you’d have guessed from the twenty other OMFGIVOTEDSQUEE posts you’ve read today. There were handshakes all around, high fives, long lines and two sixteen-year-olds telling people, “Vote Obama for me, because I can’t vote yet!” It was about what I expected from an Upper West Side Election Day morning, really, and hardly post-worthy.
I did just learn, though, that the Obama rally in Chicago has caused my Extremely Stressful Deadline to be pushed back from 6pm today until noon tomorrow, so that the fellowship office staffers can go rally for Obama too. Now I’m doubly glad I voted for the guy. Obama, I owe you one.
