Three points to anyone who gets that.
It’s here. FINALLY. For better or worse, we’re picking a President today – and more. In New Hampshire, we might end up with an all-female delegation – two Senators, two Representatives, and a Governor, held by women. Can you even imagine how cool that would be??
The odds are in the favor of us Democrats, as you can see in this chart (which is definitely the only reason I was able to sleep last night).
But when the ballots are in, how will you know if we’ve truly won? Check out this amazing guide my coworker forwarded on to the rest of us political nerds (thanks Ezra!).
I, for one, am looking forward to an amazing night. I spent 2008 exhausting myself on a State Rep race in Michigan, and we brought home a victory only after the thousands of absentee votes were counted. In the rush of taking care of my awesome candidate, I didn’t get to truly celebrate the historic moment in the Presidential race. So tonight, I’m looking for a redo. I’m looking to be able to throw up my arms and cheer at the top of my lungs as they proudly announce that we’ve reelected Barack Obama.
See you on the other side, friends.
PS: GO VOTE!!
