It’s been an incredibly long, incredibly hard-fought race. Today feels like Christmas, if Christmas came once every four years. Will America get another lump of coal in our stocking or that new bicycle? It’s up to us. “Progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” So when you pray today, move your feet.
Slow blogging today, if any. I thought about live-blogging the day, but I’d rather sit back and take it in. There won’t be much to talk about until the results start coming in anyway. I’m of course going out to vote, I’ll be having lunch with my wife, we’ll get our free cup of Starbucks, and– depending on the lines– our free Krispy Kreme doughnut. And then it’s nonstop television watching and furious Web surfing. If anything major develops, I’ll more likely be on the phone with family than here. So, in all likelihood, I’ll see you tomorrow. Hopefully, America– and the world– will be a very different place then.
