This just in.
Upon moving to Washington State I registered as an Independent. However, resolved to do my part to end the unending war between the Hippies/Vampires (Hillary) and the Werewolf/Frat Boys (W), I decided to walk over a few blocks and vote for Obama as a Democrat.
Alas, I arrived too late.
A couple of hours later I ran into a local Democratic party organizer wearing an Obama button. I asked her how things were going. She said she had come to Redmond to help with the counting of this (Eastside) Congressional District and that Obama was winning overwhelmingly all over the district.
That's good. I still have the audacity to hope that I will have the chance to vote for Obama in the Fall. I think it will come down to Obama's appeal in Texas and Ohio, which at this point is too uncertain for me to call, one way or the other.
