Nothing Left But The Tears

It's been a long haul, hasn't it? But the day is here, the cards have been dealt, and now all that's left to do is wait. I'm feeling more optimisitic today, believe it or not, than I have for months. So virtual hugs to all of you have commented and read and stood here with me through this election. Couldn't have done it without you!

Here's hoping that come tomorrow, we can all draw a sigh of relief and look forward to the next four years!

I'm feeling pretty good, because I haven't voted, yet. The polls aren't ready for me! I'm going to cast the winning vote for all the correct people and the good amendments, dontcha know? :-)

Not to worry. At approx. 0645 eastern, I decided the fate of the free world. ;^)

I agree with the optimism. For me, I think it's about the whole thing "just being over." What happens will happen, and all that's left is the last word.

Amen. Just glad I voted last week. The lines here are unbelievable....

Believe I'll run over at lunchtime, or maybe wait until I get off work, since the polls are practically right next door, at the church... :)

From your lips to God's ears! (Or your keyboard to his eyes, I guess.)

Yeah, baby! I voted and I'm ready for this circus to be over. :) (Not that there's anything wrong with circuses -- there's just too many freaks in this one.)

I'm just looking forward to a wee dram... or a good stiff drink, whichever seems appropriate when the time comes.

Voted here in West Michigan this afternoon; it was advertised as the best time to vote because lines would be down. I was in line for 50 minutes! Four years ago at the same polling place, line was only 10 minutes long. Election workers said it was heavy all day. Bush could win Michigan!

Thanks for all the updates, guys! Love reading them.

Yes, I'm glad the waiting is over.

The last few days have involved my voting early, then making predictions on the Presidential race, and the House and Senate make-up.

Then I get cranky with a fellow Bicyclist who happens to be Liberal.

I very much look forward to the 5 hours I will be spending this evening with fellow Bloggers, watching the returns, in the OC. :-)
