Two years of hard work are culminating in a single day. The campaign headquarters was all abuzz this morning. Excitement, nervousness, anticipation, anxiety: we were feeling it all! Both CNN and MSNBC played continuously, showing long lines of people waiting for the opportunity to vote. By 7:00 Chicago time, voting irregularities were already being reported, a disheartening situation to be sure.
This is it! Wow! I can hardly believe it. I am home now, but later this afternoon my husband, sister-in-law and I will head back downtown for the rally--hoping to meet up with my son somewhere among the throngs of people. The weather is wonderful, sunny and unseasonably warm. A good omen? Who knows for sure...? Whatever the case, history will certainly be made today.
