It has been many years* since I cast a vote for the President-elect. I have watched my candidates concede, accepted that I was out of step with the electoral vote, and taken four more years of the other guy.
Not tonight. I am amazed and pleasantly stunned. Barack Obama is President-elect.
*I voted for Clinton in ’92 and ’96 but was not elated to do so. The last eight years have been so bad that 1996 feels like it was many lifetimes ago.
