Voting was Fantastic
We came prepared. I had my camera. I had my iPhone. I had snacks and toys for my daughter. I even brought my video camera to capture some voting footage for BlogHer. I was ready to spend all day at our polling place.
There was nobody in line.
Well, there was one guy in front of me, but that hardly seems like a line.
It took me less than 10 minutes to vote.
I am actually giddy. I thought this would be grueling. I knew I had to vote. I was happy to vote. For the first time since 1992 I was voting for a candidate instead of against one. It was wonderful.
Yes, I would have been happy to stand in line all day to exercise my privilege to help choose our leaders, but I sure am glad I didn't have to.
As much as I think we have screwed up our foreign policy in the past 7 years I am still proud to be an American.
And I voted.
