I am about to go stand in line and cast my vote for a candidate that I feel so much confidence in. I think this is a rare thing and I may never experience it again. I don’t know what the next 4 years will bring, but I feel confident that with Obama as president we will be in a much better place than we are today. This is likely the first of many democratic candidates I will support in this lifetime and I no longer feel shame or guilt about it. Most of the time I feel pretty pessimistic about this country, especially looking back at our horrible history of marginalizing and mistreating minority groups. Today I feel a bit of hope though. GOBAMA!
