Early voting in Evansville

Sniff. An emailer describes his early voting in Evansville, Indiana to Ben-

For me the most moving moment came when the family in front of me, comprising probably 4 generations of voters (including an 18 year old girl voting for her first time and a 90-something hunched-over grandmother), got their turn to vote. When the old woman left the voting booth she made it about halfway to the door before collapsing in a nearby chair, where she began weeping uncontrollably. When we rushed over to help we realized that she wasn’t in trouble at all but she had not truly believed, until she left the booth, that she would ever live long enough to cast a vote for an African-American for president. Anyone who doesn’t think that African-American turnout will absolutely SHATTER every existing record is in for a very rude surprise.

I know I’m an old softie … but that really choked me up.

And I think I agree — the African-American turnout will be huge.

And the GOP efforts to block the AA vote by any means possible will be huge as well.

I actually expect it to get ugly in a few places.

This just makes me so happy for them, almost as good as seeing the first woman prez, but I guess we’ll just have to wait a bit for President Maddow.

Bucky I have to agree with you about the AA vote. I never thought I would live to see a non-white person become President. For some reason I didn’t want either Jackson or Sharpton to win,not that I didn’t think they were not capable. I felt the same way I felt about Hilary. Just too many high negatives. However I did support Jackson in the primary.
But Barack is a fine candidate from every perspective. He is knowledgeable about how to get things done, and about how the world works. He has a broad perspective on so many issues. He just impresses me.And, he happens to be biracial.

Tears of joy! :.)

For my part, I am happy we have someone to vote FOR, not merely a choice of “lesser of two evils”.

oh man, @ the rate I’m going, I’ll shed enough tears to last me for yrs. Its so beautiful and I can only imagine how it feels to grow up in a time where you were treated like 3rd rate citizen, then live long enough to see your country improve so much.

Jackson and Al were to polarizing.
I mean being A.A myself I had respect for there efforts for the A.A. issues but with Obama there is no comparison. He is far more succesfull because he has something they did not. The ability to see ALL RACES AS EQUAL!
To talk to the hearts of EVERY American about the issues that affect us all. He brings us together no matter the skin color, religion (or lack there of), sexual orientation, age and whatdayaknow political party.
Think about the first time you really felt you wanted to vote for Obama. Did you say hey he’s a black guy. No you probably said this is an intelligent man who knows exactly what america needs to change. Then you said Hey he’s a black guy. Some might have said oh crap he’s a black guy, then you heard him speak, went to a rally or read his book then you forgot he was a black guy.
My point is AL Sharpton and Jessie Jackson had I am a BLACK GUY writtin all over their face in the words and the issues they focused on.
Obama on the other hand come with a message for everyone.

We can’t make one race’s issue more important then anothers. there are multiple issues that americans need to deal with some more prevalent then others, some harder to irradicate then others but all important equally. An until we individually take on all issues as our own then nothing will be solved and we will always be pitted against eachother. Blacks against whites, gays against straights, Po-choice against pro-life and on and on.

So true, Belinda.

I look at Barack Obama, and what I see is a man who is good for America.

I second Margali.

You are very right Belinda. I love how I don’t feel like just a demographic in Obama’s eyes. I feel like Obama actually respects people. He’s gone through a lot of different phases in his life, and he really understands different peoples’ struggles.

Who couldn’t vote for that?

I third Margali and I second Thekingfiphtin re. Belinda’s words!!

All great sentiments re. our main man Barack.
He’s an all round good human being, being HUMAN
and sees the good in everyone no matter our differences.

As Powell put it, he’s inclusive. That’s what is apparent to me. That’s what matters to me.

A leader for our time.

P.S. Paddy are you referring to my miss-spelling of the word Kleenex?!!
