i loved the fact i was able to bring my 13-year-old daughter into the booth with me. and all the opportunities we got to talk about civil rights with regard to prop 8. so what if were in a depression, tomorrow is another day!


Is that the Queen of England?!?

Bwahaha! Smedley rocks.

I will never forget it, either. My cousin in Denver was able to take his two teenaged girls to several convention events, and they even got to shake Obama's hand. The girls were thrilled with his candidacy from day one and they were blown away to get that close to him. I'm sure they will tell the grandkids about it one day.

So who was the journalist? Was "she" Anderson Cooper :)

I'm with Smedley; I'll never forget it either. Now about the big nose, tell me: Mary Matalin, right?

Cactus Petunia

Me, neither!


Saddest thing about last night for me was that my little bean was too small to get it.

Smedley and my daughter would get along famously. My daughter thought the newscaster favored a horse.


It's an amazing day in America's history, they are both good men.

Me neither, Smedley.


I took Monkey Girl to the polls with me yesterday and explained to her that she was witnessing history -- will these kids remember this? I hope so.


Thank you for voting, and for taking the kids along, too...I think it's a terrific idea to let be part of the process as early as possible.

I haven't seen, yet - what happened with prop 8??? Oh, now I need to go wade through all the media hoo-ha and find out...

Shade and Sweetwater,


That's one way to get people through the ballot quickly, a less-than-fresh polling place. The things kids say.

...always good to see the start of the end of civilization. It is a momentous occasion.

I can recall doing the same thing .. making sure my kids saw and understood the news that was just then happening .. when they were young. Except in our case, it was the assassination of President Kennedy.

Your were wise .. and considerate of you children .. to do that.


We let the goats stay up to see the announcement, too. Which, seeing how we're in the Eastern time zone, wasn't our smartest idea.
And now it's just me, unable to sleep because I want to see if there is any chance that Prop 8 goes down. I can't give up just yet.
