Standing in line. Polls opened at 7:00 a.m. I was there at 6:40 a.m. and already a line of 100 were there.
Life partner met me soon after and brought us a mug of coffee to share.
Excitement was palpable. People were talking to one another, smiling, laughing, and happy. As we stood in line Obama volunteers distributed fliers explaining how to vote. Some people had brought their very young children with them, and were explaining the procedure and showing them who they were going to vote for. Even the children seemed excited. We entered the polling booth and I cast my ballot. I have to admit, tears of excitement were streaming down my cheeks as I stood alone in that booth.
