2008 Presidential Election

by eric on November 3rd, 2008 in: Other Stuff

I’m more invested in this Presidential election than I’ve ever been. It’s the first time I’ve felt strongly enough to donate and volunteer for a campaign and the first time in years I’ve believed good changes might actually be coming for America.

For months, I’ve subjected my lovely wife to countless hours of MSNBC, CNN, and The Daily Show. Like an addict, I jones for the latest political news from the moment I wake up, and have even had political nightmares, waking up in a cold sweat.

If you haven’t voted, and you’re here in America, tomorrow’s the big day, so get off your duff and exercise your rights, dang it.

Not sure what I’ll do once the election’s over, but in the meantime, I’ll post a geeky widget because, well, that’s what geek news junkies do, right? [widget removed 11/06 – see MSNBC for full details]

Final Electoral Results: Barack Obama 364/173 John McCain

P.S. Watch Rachel Maddow. She’s darling, goofy, and wicked smart.

P.S.S. If you’re having trouble deciding who you should vote for, I believe the correct answer is Barack Obama! 🙂
