I voted this morning.  My roommates and I were some of the first people at the polls after staring horrified at some news footage of lines out the wazoo.  We were in and out after making sure none of our chads were hanging.  (rolls eyes.)

Of course  the media is going to show the long lines and yack on endlessly about some of the snafu's but it seems every 4 years I pause and reflect how amazing it is that We The People get to decide.  It truly is extraordinary in terms of world history.  No wonder the upper crust  Europeans scoffed at those backwater Americans and  the founding fathers for the very idea of self determination...and quaked in fear when it worked.
