November 4, 2008

It is 8:11am. The polls have been open in Texas for 1 hour and 11 minutes. I should be working, but all I can focus on is how hugely important today is. Today will be exciting. Today will be historic. Today we get to elect the new leader of our country.

I locked in my vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden last week thanks to Texas early voting. I called Rob at 6:45am to get him up and out to his polling location when it opened today.

I've always been excited about elections, but this one is different. This one ignites a feeling I've never had before, and I don't know how to put it into the words the way more eloquent bloggers have.

I think it's because I truly believe that this election will make or break this country. America is strong and America is resilient, but we just can't take anymore of the failed policies that have been brought on us the last 8 years.

We need change. We need someone to believe in. We need someone to inspire us.

There is not a doubt in my mind that Barack Obama is the right person for the job.

So get out and vote today. And if you happen to live in California, vote NO on Prop 8!!!

Amen sister! I'm so excited to sit in front of the TV all night and watch history being made. I just hope, no matter who wins, the country will come together after the election. (I just hope that it's easier for me to say that because I'll be on the winning side). :)
