So, is Obama a democrat, and McCain republican?

LightSaber, republicans are generally more hands off than democrats.

I think. I may have mixed that up. I'm trying to remember the pendulum my teacher showed us, and I think the republicans were on the hands off side.

Very interesting. I've always wondered what the candidates do on election day, and how they're feeling. I'd probably be in bed throwing up.

I imagine the first thing they do is vote, haha.
It probably doesn't look good if a candidate doesn't vote. I remember the big deal people made when Paris Hilton didn't vote. Imagine McCain or Obama not voting, haha.

I would probably try to spend the day out of the limelight just with my favorite people around me laughing all day long and doing things to keep my mind off the election. Just try to be chill. Because I know that otherwise I would throw up.

Haha, I feel really stupid, but I didn't know they could vote. I knew that their families were allowed to vote, but I thought that since they would be biased, of course, they wouldn't be allowed.

Oh, maybe. I'm pretty sure they can though. I'll look it up.

It would be pretty funny if Obama voted for McCain and the other way around too lol.

Yeah, they would! Although I don't know how the media would figure out who each candidate voted for.

Very sad.

So, my dad brought home a picture of Obama and his family superimposed infront of the state seal. And then it said, "Barack Obama and the 1st Family." He's sending it to my racist grandpa, just for laughs.

On a nicer note, his daughters are soooo cute. The older one's going to be gorgeous someday.

You know what? I am SO grateful for the media updates on politics. Especially during Monday Night Football. On every lousy channel. It's not like the entire civilized world has known about this damn election for the past 9+ months...

If only. After today, we'll just be subject to the media second-guessing and/or praising the President Elect and the public decision until at least June of '09.

Oh boy I can't wait. I just adore hearing about the American election for months before/after it happens. Especially since it pertains to us Canadians so much.

They interviewed Sarah Palin on the radio station this morning. I officially love her.

The DJ told her this story about a local woman that went to a restaurant. Outside was a homeless man with a sign that said, "VOTE OBAMA: I NEED THE MONEY." The woman goes into the restaurant and sees that her waiter is wearing an "Obama '08" tie. After she's done eating, she tells him, "You know, I'm looking into Senator Obama's redistribution of the wealth theory. So is it OK if I give that homeless man outside your tip?" She said that it was just like 'real life'. The waiter was pissed that a man who had done nothing got the money that he had worked for.

There was a silence on the other line. Governor Palin laughed and said, "Bingo!" And then she explained her financial plan and tax cuts. She's smarter than people think.

listening to a story doesn't make her smarter, but I understand what you're getting at.
