May the best man win

Ok folks this is it! As Conan O'Brien has been saying last week, this election has been going on for far too long, "It started in 1966," he joked, but it may feel like that to many as it certainly does to me. I can only imagine the countless man hours and millions of dollars in total that have gone into this one day, November 4th 2008.

This election has captured the hearts and minds of billions the world over. All eyes will be on the USA tomorrow, be they friend or foe. No longer is it a question of a black or white candidate, man or woman, experience or inexperience, friendly or grumpy, old or young, war hero or lawyer, Republican or Democrat. It is about the will of the American people to have made an informed decision based on all available information either watching MSNBC or Fox News, listening to Bill Maher or Bill O'Reilly, reading The Huffington Post or even this blog or perhaps simply going with their gut after listening to the candidates themselves, to go fourth and choose the next President of the United States.

Godspeed to all voters.

Please note that it is not my intention to post again until final confirmation and I will not be answering E-mails or phonecalls for at least 24 hours. Thank You.

I sure hope that you have a water tight alibi for the next 24 hours, Lt.Col, because if anything, anything at all happens to either candidate, I'm blaming you. ;)

Well, I am happy to report that I voted this morning. The polls did not open on time because of a problem with the machines, so we all had to wait.

Poll watchers and the "you have the right to vote" people were there in force. There was also a fellow doing an exit poll in order to create a second paper trail to cross reference with the official results. The logistics of a simultaneous national vote stagger me.

Go Job, Connie, every vote for Obama is another step closer to the Lt.Col standing to attention to a Democratic Commander in Chief!

Well, that's that, I'm off to bed. ;)

I was in bed by 9:15! I tried to stay up later, but the time change has defeated me. Were you really up until 4am?

Connie, didn't go to bed until I saw the victory speech. 1 in 6 people over here stayed up to watch the election and missed work the next day. ;)

Everyone here at work was commenting on everyone else's bleary-eyed, messy-haired and wrinkled appearance. The lines for coffee were very, very long.

Connie, Worth every single wrinkle and hair out of place. ;)
