A new page in history begins today....
Hey, peoples. Well, this is it. November 4th. The end of nearly two years of campaigning for the presidency of the United States.
As the pundits like to say, no matter the outcome, history will be made. Apart from the obvious history that would be made with a win by Barack Obama, if John McCain were to (gasp) win he would be the oldest candidate to assume that position.
As Obama himself said yesterday, it will be fun to see how the story ends. His campaign has been phenomenal, and he has certainly gone the distance, something few of us could have dared to dream.
So, as we await the outcome of this heated race, I'll wish both the candidates luck (but Obama just a bit more of course ;) I'm a bit fearful of the Electoral College system; remember the whole Bush/Gore incident of a few years ago?
Condolences to Obama on the death of his beloved grandmother, and hopefully he will soon be consoled with a historic entrance to the White House.
