11.04.08 Election Day

Today was the first time EVER that Juan and I voted. Today was the election day for the new President of the United States. Juan, fresh with his citizenship, was allowed to vote for the first time. He made me ashamed that I am 32 years old and have never once voted. This year we both made it a point. It was Democratic presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama, from Illinois, with his running mate, Delaware Senator Joe Biden, versus Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain, of Arizona, with running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. I voted for McCain and Juan voted for Obama, so in hind-sight all we did is cancel each other out. Oh well, at least we had a voice. Obviously, Obama won the election and is going to be the next President of the United States.
