I think my oatmeal is telling me something…(that’s an O for Obama…if you couldn’t tell).

I have no qualms expressing my political views on my blog. I voted (yay absentee ballot!) proudly for Obama and hope beyond all hope that he is elected today.

However, I will never put down anyone if they have opposing view points, as long as they understand why they are voting for that candidate-Republican and Democrat alike. I hate people who vote for someone because someone told them to and they didn’t think for themselves. Therefore, I respect anyone who gets out there and votes today, knows why they’re voting for their candidate and stands by them.

So….please VOTE today. It’s a great right of ours…exercise it. And I would prefer you to vote for Obama πŸ˜‰ I don’t want to cry again. Yup…I cried in 2004.

    OOOOOBAMA! Love it. I wish I’d thought to do something cute with my breakfast like that. I did wear a blue dress today in honor of our Dem colors! Gotta represent!

    Go Betsy! I voted absentee in NY. And I cried in 2004 and 2000, and voted both times. Go Obama!

    Haha love the oats for Obama! Yay for taking the initiative to vote! I know alot of people don’t vote when they move out of sheer laziness.

    I went to the polls today to accompany friends to vote ( you know I voted a long time ago) and I was talking to my friend who was working helping Bates students register and she was expecting somwhere around like 500 baties to register today. So your post should be about how everbody is doing it….its the IT thing to do.
