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!!!

It’s NOT too Late!!

I’m off to do one last Obama-Biden/Warner/Connolly canvas.  Dropping literature, reminding people to vote.  Follow the link below to get involved!  We need you!  If you live in a battleground state, come on…change the world…one vote at a time!

Well, this is going to have to be a quick post as it is nearly past my bed time!!  They were expecting around 10,000 to attend the event in Leesburg, Virginia tonight, but over 30,000 were there!  It was amazing.  Electrifying!  So exciting to see that many people who felt just like I did…that Barack Obama should be our next President of the United States. 

It was fantastic.  Mark Warner and Governor Tim Kaine did fantastic introductions.  Then when Obama got there the crowd went wild!  I held my daughter on my shoulders so she could see it!  I on the other hand got a glimpse here and there as I tried to see over the sea of heads!  The crowd also loved that we were recognized as REAL VIRGINIANS!

I’ve got pictures!  But they’ll have to wait untill tomorrow to go up!  I gotta say not bad for Virginia, be it real or fake!

Turning Virginia Blue

Well we are well underway to seeing it happen.  I watched Virginia elect Jim Webb to the Senate in 2006, and Mark Warner is leading his opponent by 30 points in all polls.  What’s that guys name anyway (WHO CARES!!)?  Recent headlines hint that Senator Obama may be leading Senator “I’m a loose cannon” McCain by as much as 4 percent.  These are pretty exciting times!  My Congressional District, VA-11 , hasn’t seen blue in over 40 years!  However a little known many named Gerry Connolly is leading his opponent as well. 

Whoo Hoo!

Apparently even southern Virginia is getting the message!  Here’s a spot Ralph Stanley did that is airing in SW VA right now!  Who knew I had friends that listened to blue grass??
