An election of a lifetime


Balloting For President., Digital ID 801469, New York Public LibraryThis certainly is the election of my lifetime. If you’ve already voted today you probably had to wait a while to do so. This morning I’ve been spending time with the Encyclopedia of U.S. campaigns, elections, and electoral behavior. While it was just published in 2008 and is excellent for historical review, so much has changed this election season that I am wondering if an addendum will be published in the near future. I’m looking forward to new studies that will take the innovations used in the 2008 election into account as well as the recent grassroots movements in politics. But for right now, I’m just eager to see who wins. Writing from the edge of my seat…

I am so glad to be alive during this glorious time in our country. The grassroots movement is so inspiring! Go Obama!
