Historic vote cast...

Historic vote cast...,

Originally uploaded from my mobile by davidology.

Done and done.

In the end, it really was a toss up. I still go back and forth in my head. I could happily go for Hillary, but I think Obama sends the right message: being tired of the same old politics. A good orator, a good leader is certainly something this country could use.

In the general election, I will happily cast my vote for either candidate. It's been a long time since we've had a choice where we didn't have to hold our noses as we selected the candidate. The gravy? it was an historic vote regardless of whom you chose, and you'll get to do it again in November—regardless of the winner.

I'm really glad I could be part of it.

Mood: pleased

I'll happily vote for her in the general election if she gets the nod. But I do like that Obama is more a uniter. I thought voting idealistically rather than pragmatically for the primary wouldn't be bad.

Plus, I know a lot of my feeling in voting for Hillary was that she was a woman (and hearing the words "Madame President" gives me chills), it doesn't feel like a valid reason to vote for someone.

Bravo on both your vote and thinking to snap a shot of the ballot. =)

Ours was confusing - we also had all these delegates to elect. (?) Like it said "pick 6 delegates and 1 alternate" and there were 6 marked "pledged to Clinton", 6 marked "pledged to Obama", and 1 alternate pledged to each.

The layout was all weird & I had to stare at it a while. Of course, once I figured out what was going on, the choice was a no-brainer.

my coworker is a registered republican and voted for mccain (she rationalized it as the lesser of 5 idiots). when she told her husband, he replied "well, you did the best you could."
