Yes, friends and neighbours, the US election is finally upon us. I firmly believe that Barack Obama is the next president of the United States. However, not so many years ago I was also firmly convinced that Al Gore was the next president of the United States, so let's not go there.
My personal opinions notwithstanding, I sincerely hope that any Americans reading this plan to go out and vote tomorrow. Vote for whoever you want, just go do it. (I say this from my lofty position of a Canadian, who just went through our own federal election....with the lowest voter turnout in history. Niiiiiiiiiice)
And, oh, can you BELIEVE the story about Barack Obama's grandmother?? That is just heart breaking on about 849285 levels. Prayers to their family.
Ok, that's it for tonight. Must get back to CNN...
