Judgment day

Finally, it's here. After two years, a grueling primary race, god knows how many debates, after puerile attack ads and uplifting speeches alike, after months of canvassing and phonebanking, victories and losses and heartbreak and intrigue -- I'm off god-awful early in the morning to help put this thing away.

In the immortal words of David Plouffe: Let's go win this fucking thing.

I can't believe it's finally here!

This is going to be a great day for everyone who believes that things can operate differently. I don't want to count my chickens too early, but barring any shenanigans, I think this is going to be quick and painless for McCain.

In my most waffle-y day ever, I am vacillating every other minute between anxiety, excitement, and anticipatory depression. Don't jinx those chickens yet - there's always a chance there's a giant rooster behind your head! Instead - canvass or call voters - this is the last push: http://www.barackobama.com/index.php

I voted this morning. They were playing Cole Porter in the polling place and the old woman behind me in line remarked that she remembered when the song came out in the thirties. It turned out she had voted in 18 elections, first for Roosevelt. So in many ways we've come full circle.

Unfortunately, I have way too much work and applications due in 2 days so I can't make it out to New Hampshire, but good luck to everyone who is doing something today!
