Will there be ANYONE left in to Govern…

by the time Obama is done naming his picks?  Obama himself comes from the Senate.  He tapped Joe Biden for VP.  Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State.  And now Ken Salazar from Colorado as Secretary of Interior!   I guess the running total is four; I keep thinking of Daschle who used to be a Senator.

Not to mention all the Governors that have been named….Richardson, Napolitano…

And lets not forget my own personal favorite…Rahm Emanuel from the House. 

Anyone else wondering how many elections are going to have to be held as a result???

Obamania

Interestingly enough I just bought Obama’s book “The Audacity of Hope”.  I’m about 15 pages in, and it’s a pretty good read so far.  I would also recommend Joe Biden’s as well.  I read that about a year ago.

I JUST VOTED!!

That’s right!  I just cast my vote for Barack Obama-Joe Biden, Mark Warner, and Gerry Connolly.  That’s one more blue vote in the state of Virginia!

I have to say I’m a little disappointed with the process.  No lines, no arguements…just some pesky little kids that support McCain.  I told them to “GET AWAY FROM ME!”  I was all riled up and ready for the fight…but hey…

I VOTED BLUE!!



Election Night Hot Spots…

What’s up with those not so red anymore states?  That seems to be the question on everyone’s minds. 

I live in one of them, Virginia.  I actually just made what I assume is my last volunteer effort for the Obama-Biden/Warner/Connolly tickets today.  A last minute literature drop on doors.  Now this should have been quick and painless.  It’s a door hang and you are out…however I didn’t make it till about 5:30 PM.  UGH!  Have you ever tried to find houses in the dark?  It’s not a good time!  We did manage to finish our packet, and I’m calling it a wrap.  I hope it was enough. 

States to keep an eye on:  Virginia, Georgia, and Indiana.  All will have numbers out early.  All three were thought to be Republican strongholds.  Virignia is showing Barack Obama with about an 8 point lead (depending on your poll), and the other two states are close.  We NEED one to go blue!!  Two would be great!  And three would mean I could pop open a bottle of super cheap champagne, drink a fair amount, go to bed, and then wake up on November 5th with a hangover, but delighted.

So go vote Virginia!  I want my home state to be the first “red state” to be a “blue state” tomorrow night!!!

Joe Biden: Deep in “Republican” Territory

Apparently Joe Biden has been venturing deep into what has typically been thought of as unwinable for the Democrats.  These areas area rural and midsized communities not thought of as Democratic strong holds.  But Joe Biden has been out stumping hard these last couple of days.  Apparently these areas are pretty receptive to Joe Biden and Barack Obama.  Oh, Joe, say it isn’t so…hahahaha!!
