This is what it is all about

Nothing mind-blowing here, this is just a post so I can remember it in years to come. I'm sitting on my couch, 8:40pm on election Tuesday, next to Wifey and JAM, Wifey's hetero-life-partner L is here with us too, watching the election coverage. I love the fact that we can share this monumental event with JAM, telling him what's going on, explaining the Electoral College (well shoot, I'm trying to explain it to Wifey too ;) ), really showing him how this whole thing works.

He won't be able to stay up for even more than the <1% in-type projections but at this point Obama is up 100+ to 30-something. That would make me have nice dreams. He did get to vote with Wifey this morning (after getting up at 6:30 and standing on line for more than 2 1/2 hours!!!! unmedicated!!!!! I would rather get intimate with a very sharp stick) so he was even able to participate in his own way. Apparently he and Wifey were having a conversation debating whether he would remember any of this in 20 years. Hopefully, if blogger doesn't go out of business or anything, this might serve as a nice reminder.

GO OBAMA!!!!!!!

For the record, you have not had to explain all that much to me, my dear lovely hubby... and I bet I could fair better than a good majority of average voters on the Electoral College.
