It is 8:30am, and I will leave in a few minutes to cast my vote for the 2008 election.
Right now, I am watching Barack Obama casting his vote. The first African American presidential candidate voting for himself to become the next president. His young daughters are at his side – what a day for them.
Sadly, his grandmother had already cast her vote, but passed away yesterday.
What a mixed day of emotions for this presidential hopeful…
And sadly, Tim Russert’s voice is silent today. His son has been doing a remarkable job, and hopefully, my son will know the name Russert in his own life.
Tonight… our country will be moving in a new, different direction depending on the man who accepts the nation’s nod.
