I'm sitting here watching Obama address the crowd in Raleigh and I literally had a chill go over me when he said hello. Boy, that has not happened in a long time and really not even with this election until this moment. Gerry had to leave at 6am to get to Raleigh and preset on the press platform this morning. We are eating, breathing, sleeping politics in our house since Gerry is having to cover all of the candidates and they are fiercely pursuing NC. And today Wesley is playing the role of Ralph Nader in a school mock debate. Otherwise I would have taken her to Raleigh to see the next president of the USA. Did you vote yet? I went yesterday, walked right in, got my ballot, voted and was out of there in less than 10 minutes. Last election when Al Gore won, I stood in line in Charlotte at the library downtown for 5 hours. We couldn't even get into the early voting places then. This was so much better, glad I early voted!!!!
