Today is Election Day here in America, and it’s turning out to be one of the biggest I can remember. I voted pretty early this morning and the line was typical… Only one or two deep. I was in and out in a jiffy. When I went to work about half an hour later, though, the line was getting long. My commute also takes me by several voting stations and they all had rather long lines, too. People are voting in numbers I’ve never seen. I wish it were like this every year, but I’ll take what I can get.
For once I’m rather excited about the election, too. Regardless of who wins the presidential election, the Bush era will soon be over and both candidates will be an improvement (though I prefer Obama in this one). For a Tuesday night there are tons of people out on the streets. Will they be celebrating here in San Francisco an Obama victory or if McCain wins will there be rioting in parts of the country?
I don’t know, but I do know I’m watching websites trying to keep up because this is going to be a big year. I’m worked up. My friend J. at work is going to an election party. If Obama wins they will break out the really good wine. If McCain wins they’ll break out the whiskey to drown their sorrow and put aspirin on the nightstand. Either way, it sounds like there will be a lot of drinking tonight.
If you’re in California and haven’t voted, you have one more hour. Don’t miss this opportunity to make history.Comments Off | Catergorized: life political san francisco
