NaBloPoMo ~ Day 4

Barring any miracles for the McCain hopefuls, looks like Barack Obama is WINNING the presidency! Woohoo!!!

I voted today with such hope. I've never felt that way before. Save President Clinton's years, every single presidential election I've voted in, I've voted for the lesser of two (or three) evils. This year, I was able to cast my vote with confidence in the future ~ with hope ~ and with great humility. Voting for a man that the first 16 (!!) presidents of the United States could have, theoretically, owned as a piece of property ~ wow. Sure, he's a junior senator from IL. The last junior senator from IL that won the presidency was Abraham Lincoln. Who needs experience? What kind of experience, exactly, does it require to be president, anyway? I can't think of a single job that could adequately prepare someone to be the leader of this country. I'm more interested in Barack Obama's take on health care, his plans for the economy, and getting us out of Iraq and Afghanistan quickly and safely. I'm thrilled that we are choosing a different path than the one we've been on for the last 8 years. I know that things will not change overnight, but I also have great expectations for this new leader. I believe that he will be a uniting force ~ not just in our country, but in our world.

I have such a warm feeling tonight. What a joyous day! Thank you, to everyone who voted ~ regardless of which candidate you chose today, you exercised a right that people ~ patriots ~ have died for, and for that we should all be thankful. Good for you, and for me, and for all of us.

God Bless America!

Yes! Your blog is great, and I know something about the night elves, they are the race I WOW power leveling when I get my first account:The reclusive Night Elves power leveling[ were the first race to awaken in the World of Warcraft Power Leveling. These shadowy, immortal beings were the first to study magic and let it loose throughout the world nearly ten thousand years before Warcraft I. The Night Elves' reckless use of magic drew the Burning Legion into the world and led to a catastrophic war between the two titanic races. The Night Elves barely managed to banish the Legion from the world, but their wondrous homeland was shattered and drowned by the sea. I love this race and suggested everyone that start their WOW power leveling a rogue or druidof night elf
