Check in!

Ok. Done.

Stood in line for not much time at all; got there when the polls opened, with the Cuttlespouse. Including the walk to the polls, it took us half an hour.

Now comes the waiting.

We've heard the last speech
And the final commercial
So all that is left is to get out the vote.
And what's within reach?
Though it's quite controversial--
Elections with no major problems of note!

With no hanging chads
And no ballots bewilderin'
To mess up the message delivered this day
So all moms and dads
Can say to their children
That's how it works in the U S of A.

And later tonight
With a smile on his face
The winner will stand in the spotlight and speak.
We are done with this fight!
But remember, the race
For Two Thousand and Twelve will be starting next week.

I hope all of you that could, voted. And all of you around the world who have friends here you can email, have twisted their arms and chastised them duly, to get them to the polls today.

Yay! Obama!

I'm so relieved that we didn't have to wait another day to find out. That drove me just about insane last time.
