Well, I just voted

Obama picked up at least two votes in Florida today, as the wife and I "pulled the lever" for the good senator from Illinois. There was about a 20 min line to do so. Looked like a mostly Obama crowd based on the parking lot stickers and shirts and hats folk attached to their bodies.

I live in a college town in the Pan Handle, and our county is 2-1 Dem-Repub. We went to a campaign party yesterday and they are really intent on getting out the vote as early as possible. I also signed up to drive people to the polls on election day. If you have the time and means, you ma want to consider doing so.

Some other interesting tidbits:
- I can't recall the last time I saw a McPalin ad, while Obama is on seemingly every commercial segment possible. Having moved here after living in "safe states" like California and Mass, I find this fascinating.

- Someone in line told me that Florida A&M University, the traditionally African-American university in town, will be closed on election day. If that is true that would be really cool. When I was at the Michelle Obama rally there last month she said the campus has 100% registration for those that live in the dorms. That could be worth a few thousand votes.

- I was just in COSTCO and heard an Obama ad there too.

- Joe the Plumber is a turd.
