Well, the big day has finally arrived. Yes, it's election day. All I can say is--if you haven't already done so, get out and vote! If you don't get out and vote, you have no right to complain or celebrate when either candidate gets into office. And don't complain about the long lines. Think of how many people there are in the world who would gladly stand in line for days just to have the right to vote and have a say in how their country will be run. Just something to consider as you're standing there in line....
I early voted so now I'm just gonna sit back and let the returns roll in. Which does not mean I'll be watching election coverage wall-to-wall this evening. Yes, I'm interested in who wins but it's a lot like the baseball playoffs were for me. I was interested to know who was winning and would tune in for short amounts of time but I just can't make myself watch an entire baseball game on TV. Same thing with the returns--I will tune and keep up with how things are going, but I just can't make myself watch the coverage from start to finish like I know many others can. Does this make me a bad person?
