I went and voted today with the hope that somehow my candidate would win. I was worried, after 8 years of complete bullshit...would it be possible that there could be a chance to turn around so much negativity that had crept its way into the persona of our nation...
I was happy with the election and I think the best candidate won.
That being said, I never thought McCain was shitty, he was not the most conservative republican and pre-Palin explosion I wasn't going to vote for him, but I did see him as someone I wouldn't have cried about if Obama lost.
I liked McCain 8 years ago... a lot, but his own party destroyed him when I think he had a definite chance to be a decent Prez.
With a historical eye though, I look at this election on a completely different level. The pride I felt as our country took one more step away from the nasty shadowed past it has in regards to the civil rights of each and every citizen, is difficult to put into words. I was able to witness history and what an amazing historic moment it was.
Now, I am going to freakin go to bed, I am exhausted.
